On The Rig

 Just off the quay in Galveston there's an oil rig that's been repurposed into a museum.  It's called the Ocean Star, and it's a pretty neat place.  There are a lot of very detailed and beautiful models of oil rigs and ships.  The process of drilling offshore, from finding oil through production, is detailed in the museum.  As the museum's sponsors are various businesses related to oil, the perspective of the place is pro-oil.  At the same time, it gives factual information regarding the process and how people work and live on oil platforms.  Definitely worth the visit.
