Beautiful tribute!

First time visitor to Selena's memorial. Mirador De La Flor was beautiful. I think it's awesome how she is facing the Corpus Christi bay. I did see a few homeless men hanging... read more

Previous pics of this review are misleading. The statue is located on the water front and not at the "museum." The museum is actually just a large room located in a recording studio. The contents of the room are actually pretty cool. They have lots of her outfits on display with all of her awards. Her car is even in... More

First time visitor to Selena's memorial. Mirador De La Flor was beautiful. I think it's awesome how she is facing the Corpus Christi bay. I did see a few homeless men hanging around the area but they didn't bother us. Would definitely make the trip and time to visit again.

I'm sure some find this monument inspiring, but it wasn't much to look at and it was terribly crowded. The area around it was filthy and had lots of discarded cups and food packages, most of which looked like it came from those visiting the memorial. If it is that important to folks, I'd think they'd have enough respect to... More

The statue is a nice tribute to a soul that was taken way to early in her life.Easy to get to, and audio was good.

Everytime we go to Corpus we visit Selena's memorial. To our surprise they put audio! It was perfect. People are able to take pictures and learn about her.

My husband and I visited the museum and were greeted by a welcoming and warm lady upfront. Admission to the museum is only $3. There was a young lady that gave us a partial tour of the museum and the rest was self exploring. It is a very modest museum. The gift shop is small but are pencils, posters, dvds,... More

It was a nice visit, and the cost isn't high. Would have been a better visit, if not rushed out of Studio A. Waited for an elderly lady to take a picture of a HUGE portrait in the studio, who was clearly tech naïve. I then attempted to take my turn for a photo, and the guide came back in... More

Although the studio/museum is a bit smaller than I went in expecting, they make it clear from the start that the place is still a studio that shares the Selena exhibit and gift shop on the side. I will say the $3 admission price is a steal, as I would've easily paid $20. They take you in the studio where... More

I went to the museum during the Fiesta de la Flor in April. They were supposed to be open on Saturday until 12 but closed the doors at 11am. There were almost 100 people in line that had been there for over an hour waiting. After several minutes of chanting they decided to let the rest of the line in.... More
