Visit the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum in Galveston!
One of our very favorite things to do in Galveston is to visit the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum. It’s a great museum focused on the offshore oil and gas industry… but the best part is that it’s housed on a retired jackup drilling rig off Pier 19!
You buy tickets in the gift shop and then walk across the long pedestrian bridge to the Ocean Star.
In addition to this, there is a film to get you started with your tour, displays, actual examples of equipment and exhibits about careers.
