It is huge. We went right after lunch. The two year old couldn't stay long. You could spend a morning or afternoon here. Seating in the middle. Plus a bar. Drinks and snacks too. Everything you need whether it is a souvenir or beach accessories.

A must stop for me and my family when visiting Galveston. Great souvenir shop with something for kids and adults of all ages. Prices are quite reasonable. My recommendation is to get something cold to drink or enjoy an ice cream while sitting on a rocking chair on the porch. Take time out of your busy schedule to relax on the porch while enjoying the beach view and breeze. Breathe in the good air, breathe out the bad air...it will be worth your time. Enjoy!

Murdochs is pretty much the only souvenir shop you need to take your kids to. All kinds of shells, cheap beach toys, t shirts, etc. And your husband might even buy a genuine Hawaiian shirt! Mine did! So do your shopping, then go sit out on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the waves come in.

Being the last on the water souvenir shop in Galveston, Murdochs is a tradition. We spent more r hr an an hour sitting on their deck relaxing in a rocking chair enjoying the seabreeze. You can also grab a drink or two while taking in the ocean sounds.

Murdochs is a wonderful gift shop that is right on the Seawall, just a short walk across the street from the Hotel Galvez. They have a huge selection of Galveston souvenirs, including sea shells, t-shirts, ocean themed ornaments, wall hangings, cups, glasses, sandals, boogie boards, and even ocean-themed table lamps. There's also a small bar with you can buy a beer and just hang out in the lounge chairs on the covered balcony, and a view of the ocean. Murdochs is built right over the water, has been destroyed by hurricanes time and time again, and completely restored to even better shape than it was originally. It's a Galveston tradition to stop by here to shop for souvenirs. Don't miss it.
