Anyone who enjoys a variety collection of art mixed with personal items that meant something to a person, and housed in a grand example of Renaissance architecture... This is worthy of your time. Walk slowly and take it in... Enjoy the day.
I enjoyed the mix of Texas History with Texas Artists. Was also nice to see the museum is being used for special events too. We happened to be there when there was a perfectly sized farmers market in the parking lot. Lots for everyone, and music was great!
Absolutely fantastic Museum and Venue. Venue staff was on point on every front making sure EVERY SINGLE guest was taken care of. The museum manager was kind and full of charm. He never strayed away from questions and was attenative to everything his guests needed. BRYAN MUSEUM IS AMAZING!
Just beautiful. Wonderful place to sit and relax in the garden or visit the museum for fun and education. Also book the kids room for your little pirate or mermaid for a great place for kids to build memories. Perfect for weddings and how renewals as well. Pastor Roy Dabney provides a period themed wedding in his attire and verbiage any wedding he works in a themed environments
Really cool museum and art gallery. The tour was awesome and the people there were very nice and knowledgeable. We were excited to see the paintings and cowboy gear. Definitely recommended for a nice visit.the grounds were beautiful and the best day to go is probably on Sunday because you can also go to the farmer's market. The museum also does a great job supporting the locals, which is a plus.
Great museum about local and Texas history with an amazing collection in a beautiful historic building. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the touch screen pads to learn more information about the collection. We look forward to going back. The grounds are lovely as well!
I finally got a chance to visit here and it is a fantastic museum. Truly an asset to Galveston. The building itself is an old orphanage that has been beautifully restored. If you are into Texas and Western history, this is the place for you. There are hundreds of antique firearms on display as well as dioramas, art, historical documents, and other artifacts related to that time period. The Bryan museum is a must see while in Galveston.
A lovely place and they have really done a wonderful job on everything. There's something for everyone. Also it's right in the neighborhood. It's an honor to have the museum here. Beautiful weddings, etc.
I had the privilege of being a vendor at an event here! Not only is the venue gorgeous but the entire experience was amazing. Peter the event coordinator was extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this venue and I hope to be able to come back!
Phenomenal place to visit if you are a history guru looking for a place to learn about the area and this part of the state. There are a lot of things to see and if you take your time you could easily be here 2 hours or more. My only negative was one of the security guys kept following my wife and I around the whole time. It's kinda creepy....
Step back in time. Learn the history off Galveston and all the people who worked hard after it was destroyed in the big storm. Walk the beautiful gardens and finish with wine in the Gardens. Wonderful treat@
Phenomenal tour guide. She had our group mesmerized with her knowledge of history and natural way to engage each person on the tour. It was several hours and it seemed like minutes. I am intrigued by the orphanage and the children that survived the hurricane and also the many children that lived there throughout the years the orphanage existed. The Bryan Museum is a MUST see if you're in Galveston. First class and the people were beyond helpful. Love the southern hospitality! The collection has something for everyone.
