Forgotten Gateway: Coming to America Through Galveston Island
Galveston - Moody Gardens
Opening November 21

Personal Letters and ads announced to 19th-Century Europeans the opportunities for land ownership in Texas. this exhibit tells the stories of immigrants who used this US port of entry.

I went to see this exhibit when it was at the Bob Bullock museum in Austin; it concentrates a lot on the Jewish immigration and doesn't explain much about why Galveston became the port of entry and not some of the others. It has a small display on the mid-19th century, mostly focuses on later 19th and early 20th Century.
