A very nice place for a family visit, and a good overview of CC history. Watch out for the splinter embedded in the piece of siding, a leftover from the hurricane; the doctor's office; the shipwreck stuff right at the front 9and the video really is very good); and the very impressive dress!

Great way to spend a cool cloudy afternoon in Corpus Christy. The exhibits are set up as self guided tour. Interesting history of Texas gulf coast, from prehistoric time up to the present. I liked the history of Spain and its early development of the of the Gulf Coast region. We both had a very relaxing hour or so wandering... More

Wow - had NO idea that this museum had so much to see! We had a great time learning about Corpus Christi history, seeing artifacts of the old shipwreck. Well worth the money.

Nice museum that describes us history very well. Aspects like spain , indians and slavery are described in a clear way. Pitty that the rwplica of la pinta is not stationed at the museum anymore but at a pier of corpus christi.

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
