I was 11 when she was taken from us but I cried my eyes out when she passed away. It was nice to see her things and feel her presence. I would have loved to meet her dad or sister but I didn't see them there :( maybe next time!

We were given a tour by Mr. Quintanilla himself. He showed us different areas of the studio, like a behind the scenes tour-really appreciated that. He was open for any questions, but I think our group was in shock that we were actually on this tour. Suzette was there too, that was a plus. Really enjoyed the whole experience. A... More

I am a little too young to remember Selena, but because the museum is highly regarded we decided to stop by anyways. They only accept cash for admission to the museum, so make sure you are prepared. The first part is more of a guided tour and you can see where Selena recorded much of her music. The building itself... More

This amazing little pearl is but a tiny fraction of SELENA's legacy to this world. I visited with my mum (who came from Italy) and her friend. The museum is tiny and condensed in just a few rooms. There are many of her gorgeous outfits, all of her Grammies, her dolls, her Faberge eggs collection. EVEN the red porche she... More

I am not a fan, but I believe that everyone that has a chance to be in Corpus should be. It´s by the shore and was easy to park. Does not take too long and as I said... a spot for fan!

My family and I went and while there we saw her dad. And he acted so rude to everyone and shut the door, I was shocked, he should be happy people come to the museum, it's not like he was the celebrity anyways because we sure didn't go to see him.

I had been looking forward to going to the museum for many years. I finally was able to go this weekend, to my surprise it was closed. Only open M-Friday...Really? Totally broke my heart. Well at least I was able to go see her statue over at the beach...That was cool. I love Selena, I have been a fan since... More

We were so impressed with the museum. And the most cool part of the whole thing was that we were able to meet her dad and take pictures with him. He works at the museum. Totally cool.

If you catch her dad in there he is AMAZING if you tell him this is your first time there and he's not doing anything her will show you around and tell you about anything. I also saw him in a sto way before that and he was so nice i talked to him for about a hour he answered... More
