We had some time after a tour before dinner and decided to visit the Rosenburg Library/Museum. It was an interesting place, free to visit and the museum houses an interesting small book collection as well as memorabilia from WWI.

4th floor is the main museum. Not a large exhibit, but it does have some uniqueness to it. Self-paced and a free attraction. We recommend to visit the visitors center across the street in the Ashton Villa as well.

Library with a very nice Galveston history museum on the top floor. Great place to spend an hour or so...especially if you get a rainy day in Galveston.
