Rachel's Review:
   I really liked going to the Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum. It was neat because it used to be an actual oil rig and we got to walk on a bridge to get to the museum. I liked this museum because it didn't take too long, only about an hour. And we didn't have to listen to a guide since we walked and looked at everything ourselves.

   The museum is on the ocean so we got to see a lot of the ocean and birds that fly over the ocean. My family had a lot of fun visiting this museum and I would totally go there again next time we are in the area.

Dad's Notes:
   The Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum is a great place to visit if your family is interested in history and ships. At one time, this museum was an actual working oil rig. It is no longer used for that purpose and was turned into a museum. The self-guided tour includes three floors of displays. This museum has interactive displays and videos that illustrate the history of the oil rig and the importance the oil industry has on Galveston.

  The Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum is located on the ocean in Galveston. To get to the museum, visitors have to walk across a pedestrian bridge. At the end of the bridge, the ticket office and gift shop are at the entrance to the museum. This is a great place to visit if you are in Galveston and want to learn about the history of the oil industry in Galveston. <

Rachel Tip:   When you visit the Ocean Star Oil Museum, make sure you wear good shoes. It is an oil rig, so you need to be careful where you are walking so you don't trip and fall.
