Ticketing software for zoos, museums and other attractions

About Galaxy

Galaxy is a ticketing software designed to help theme parks, zoos, aquariums, museums, ferries, or other tours and attractions handle point-of-sale processes, sales, memberships, and more on a unified platform. Organizations can manage, reserve, and invoice advance or group sales orders, create and apply discounts, provide upsell opportunities, and collect customers' demographic information for marketing purposes.

Galaxy allows water parks to sell various types of tickets on-site and via self-service kiosks, web stores, resellers, online travel agencies, and third-party distributors. Museums can offer custom payment plans to guests, create a seat map, and set up pricing levels for events, and issue membership or annual passes. Managers can also add menu items to food and beverage orders, define prices based on day or time and streamline checkout processes using a customizable touchscreen.

Galaxy facilitates integration with various third-party fundraising, donor management, and other systems. Theme parks can store, view, and capture members' images for quick identity verification. Guests can also utilize the online portal to redeem entitlements, retrieve and display passes, and more.

A must for admissions-based business

Reviewed on 2019/08/05


I loved its ability to create barcodes, to track and produce reports from. It was a large software that had a lot of capability, many of which I didn’t even scratch the surface of.


I disliked how many options and little buttons there were to get to one place. It’s like twenty different routes to get to one destination. As a user, I also felt like the software as a whole looked a little outdated.

We have found Gateway to be more of a partner in our operations than a passive vendor. We have a strong relationship with every level of the company. I could not be more pleased with the service and the products they provide. Galaxy has been a powerful tool to not only manage our sales, but enhance our guests experiences at our facilities.


Gateway Ticketing System's Galaxy offers us a single sales platform to service all our individual business needs. It provides a powerful ticketing system, with a traditional POS system that continues to evolve to meet our ever changing environment. The ability to run one platform, not only allows efficient system management, but also provides system experience for our guests and team members.


There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to managing the system. However Gateway has always provided us with outstanding support and documentation.

Not ideal for nonprofit institutions in need of ticketing software

Reviewed on 2017/06/10


Some nice features, but if looking for a system for a nonprofit - museum, zoo, etc - a more holistic view of constituents can be managed in a newer software, like Blackbaud's Altru.


It's solely a ticketing system, which may be sufficient for some clients, but I've found software like Altru, which handles fundraising, etc., is much preferred for nonprofit organizations to get a 360 degree view of constituents.

Response from Gateway Ticketing Systems

Thanks for leaving us a review. We took this and similar feedback we were hearing and worked over the last several years to make our CRM functionality much more robust. With Galaxy and our CRM+ product, you will get a full 360 degree view of your customer and you're able to use that data to personalize every guest experience. We also offer industry leading integrations with software like Altru if you'd prefer to stick with your current solution but want the best-in-class ticketing and reporting functionality available in Galaxy.

Galaxy presents some interesting challenges but also provides customer service to troubleshoot.

The POS is easy to use. Reservations are a bit more challenging but with minimal training there is a high degree of user friendliness.


If you are using multiple platforms and need to rely on integration you will likely experience some challenges.
