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.
