located in Galveston harbour. A tall ship, Elissa (http://www.galveston.com/texasseaportmuseum/), is open for touring. Our girls had a great time climbing up and down stairs and running the deck. I wouldn't have thought to visit this ship if it hadn't been for the recent discussions about Arabella. Thanks!

Is this ship open all the time (I guess a better way to phrase that is is it a permanent attraction) or is it just there for a little while?

hmmm, that's a good question. I guess that Galveston is it's permanent home since the figurehead is fashioned after Mrs. Mary Moody Northern, a major benefactor of the city. Also, a sailing academy uses this ship for their program.

We live in Houston, so that's a great resource!
