Aristotle challenged Plato's views on philosophy in his Athens Lyceum, where people gathered for lectures and observations. And so it was that Lyceum became synonymous
with important gatherings
– like yours.

The Lyceum
Galveston Island

Nestled in historic downtown Galveston, Texas is The Lyceum of Galveston Island – an elegant, mid 19th century Victorian-style chapel and meeting hall. With a total renovation, restoration, and remodeling completed in summer of 2009, The Lyceum now takes its place as the Island’s new premier venue for weddings, receptions, meetings and events.

Without question, The Lyceum of Galveston Island defines and combines a traditional Victorian elegance with Southern comfort – and all enveloped with an ambience of historic charm. Whatever the occasion, The Lyceum will be the perfect venue as the structure showcases a square tower with steeple and elegantly-restored double doors, hipped roofs, arched openings, and stunning floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows – the perfect backdrop for your very special event.

Be assured that our knowledgeable and very experienced staff will assist in planning your wedding, reception, meeting, special brunch, luncheon, or dinner, and will professionally meet – and exceed – all of your needs to ensure that your event is perfect in every detail. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
