Travel through time at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's newest Limited Engagement Exhibition, Forgotten Gateway: Coming to America Through Galveston Island (December 17, 2011-April 1, 2012). This exhibit is the first of its kind that tells the story of Galveston as an immigrant port of entry into the U.S. during the 19th and early 20th century. Many understand Ellis Island was the sole contributor to immigration into America; however many lesser known ports of entry including Galveston provided the American dream as well. This exhibit is perfect for families of all ages, students and those that are interested in learning more about our nation's melting pot history.
Photographs, film footage, graphic narratives, artifacts and hands-on interactive experiences bring this forgotten gateway to life. Make sure to view their special programs that present this Forgotten Gateway further, including: Public Symposia and Conversations with the Experts, Film and Documentary as well as Interactive Programs for Families and Youth. Docent-led exhibition tours are offered Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2:00 p.m.
