One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2020 is to take advantage of living in a tourist destination and visit the attractions and museums right in my own backyard. I’m in luck. On Jan. 25 and 26, 12 Galveston and area museums will participate in the second annual Galveston Museum Day.

Participating museums will offer free admission, discounts and special activities to visitors. The event will showcase the wide variety of museums on the island and in the area. Those who visit three or more museums will receive a free Historic Galveston coloring book. And Galveston Museum Day participants will be eligible to win attractions passes and a one-night stay at Hotel Galvez, home to a hall of history and known for its ghost tours.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations coordinator for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
