A striking, all white building on the water, this art museum was voted one of the best in southern Texas. Although permanent exhibits feature art from the region, the museum is known for its rotating exhibits of fine art work in different mediums.

Regional Museums oftentimes have a bad rap! People think the art is of low quality or boring! This delightful museum (MORE CORRECTLY CALLED THE ART MUSEUM OF SOUTH TEXAS) is a fantastic place that has a beautiful natural setting and stunning architecture within which superb pieces by local, regional, and national artists are seen in all their glory. I loved... More

We always visit museums when we travel and were looking to our visit. Unfortunately, this museum had very limited exhibits ... even with the Andy Warhol touring exhibit. Lunch at the cafe there was outstanding - a local company!

Small but great place! Exhibits change often and the entire experience is delightful! Bright and open, this is a great place to come on an afternoon when you have no special outdoor plans.

NO PHOTOS ALLOWED INSIDE. Honestly, if it wasn't for the Warhol exhibit, I'm not sure we would have spent much more time at this art museum. In fact, we also visited the CC Science & History Museum today (located across from the art museum) and I think I saw more works of art in it! We were disappointed to see... More

I have been visiting this art museum for many years, and it always seems to be changing and improving. It now has a wonderful cafe with views of the ships arriving and departing. I visited during the Andy Warhol exhibit, and was delighted to begin to grasp the significance of his work. There are also regional exhibits and amazing art... More

Charming with a regional pride. A variety of types and styles of art. I appreciated the text/commentary on the Andy Warhol exhibit.

Although I have lived in this town for over 5 years, today was the first time I visited the Museum -- I should have gone sooner and more often. It is now on the list of sites I am recommending to visitors. The museum has a nice variety of great paintings, sculptures, and pottery. All of the Art is very... More

Changing exhibits are always very interesting! Go grab a sandwich at Hesters and enjoy the view once you are done touring the museum!

I was leading a Service Trip in Corpus Christi last May and my group visited the Museum as one of our learning activities during the week. My entire group of college students loved the art, the great price, and small cafe on the bay. We will be returning this May!
