This is a great place for adults and kids to visit. The exhibit are interesting for both sets of visitors. They also have some demonstrations and hands on exhibits.

We went here to see the replica Columbus ships. Had even read an ad that morning talking about them. We paid and went through the entire museum when we asked at the end where the ships were they told us they were destroyed because they were rotting. I think since that's your biggest selling point you should let people know... More

My husband and I took out 11 month old daughter on July 19th. We thoroughly enjoy all sorts of museums and every time we travel we like to go to as many as we can.

I loved what we saw in this humble little museum. There was quite a lot to see! If you have never been, it is worth the trip! Very affordable ticket prices and close free parking available.

This museum has a great and varied collection. The children's area is highlighted by little buildings to climb in. The day we went had activities for kids ages 5 and up. Saturdays and Sundays means actors in the interactive displays offering fun and insightful commentary. Visiting the ships was interesting but disappointing to see the extensive damage from a barge.

The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is a great place for the whole family. From the interactive children's area to learning about reptiles, local history and industry. It provides much to see, hear and touch. A relaxing tourist attraction!

I grew up in Corpus, and visited the Museum often...always an exciting adventure! I was pleased to take my grandchildren there about a year ago. They had as much fun as I remember having! Many hands on activities! Recommend it highly for families.
