The price was only $3 and it was just amazing to stand inside Selena's studio and see her personal items. Fun place to visit even with kids!

We thought this was a huge waste of time. We would never recommend anyone to go. I guess if you were a nut about Selena you would like it. Seems like the family members are just trying to make a living off of her.

I was young when Selena passed away and didn't here her music until after she passed. This museum/recording studio is an amazing tribute to such an international musician. Everything from her clothes, awards, and car is on display in the museum. At $3 for the entrance fee it is a must to visit while in town.

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.

Gorgeous statue on shoreline and all her memorials is nice. A must stop for everyone. Great that the town still remembers her.

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
