Just cool knowing the history.

Nice people. Great to learn the history in surfing in Corpus Christi and who started it. Truly enjoyed my time there.

First of all, you have to appreciate the free admission. I would've gladly paid $5-10 to get in. After you get past the gift shop, you get to one exhibit hall and that's pretty much it. The surfer garage display is interesting, and I liked listening to the video narrated while you're there. The girl at the front desk is... More

A Surfer Museum - what a nice surprise. There is lots of history here and amazing displays. This is a must see on any walking tour of the downtown.

This museum is dedicated to all things surfing! It highlights local surfers with stories and photos galore. If you look closely, you might see someone you know from the South Texas area!

Free to enter, although small we spent 35 minutes here. It was clean, consise, well designed and the movie playing was eye catchjng and funny. We bought some tee-shirts (some were half off) that we hope to wear next time we visit other surf shops.

We didn't spend much time here- 15 minutes- but it is a nice (tiny) museum with lots of surf boards, vintage tools for making boards and some need artwork depicting board styles through the years. This was a good change from beach (It was raining for us) and a good value (free!).

Kids loved this, spent a good amount of time here. Especially great option when you've had enough of the beach!

If you're in the area, you owe it to yourself to visit this great surfing museum. When I visited, they had just installed the "Endless Summer 50th Anniversary Exhibit," filled with everything from the original photos and artwork (that became the most iconic image in surfing), to the cameras that Bruce Brown filmed Robert August and Mike Hynson's around-the-world journey....

This was an in and out quick stop. My teens aren't that hip on reading stuff on the walls. And the place is tiny so there is not that much there. It is in a really cool little area of downtown that is fun to walk around in though. And it is a unique spot -- so run in if... More

This was free. This is in the back of the shore. There are some really neat photos and surfboards that you can look at.
