My wife has loved her for many years so having the oppurtunity to visit was eye opening. The entry fee is far less than it should be to view everything from her clothing, that she designed, her car, Emmys and so much more. We had the chance to meet her dad as well which was an unexpected treat. Her talent... More

Our main reason to return to Corpus Christi was to take our family ,mainly our 12 year old daughter to the Selena Museum! She loves her so much and is so interested in learning more about her family but turned shy as Mr. Quintanilla took us on the Tour! We will definitely return to the Musuem in the future!

Mandatory to visit Selena's Museum when hanging around Corpus Christi. We were greeted by her father, Mr. Quintanilla and that made the experience 150 times better. The museum is spacious with all he awards and pictures of beautiful Selena. The beautiful dresses and pictures will make your heart melt. They also have a gift shop. Highly recommended.

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.
