The entrance to the Texas Surf Museum is tucked behind the Water Street Oyster Bar so you won't see it from the street. If you want to find it, just ask where the Executive Surf Club is located and you can't miss it. It is also on the same path as the South Texas Music Walk of Fame. Surf Club... More

This was more of a storefront than a museum. Dirty. There were a few surf boards and pictures in the back but mostly a store to buy surfing type things.

This place brings more coolness to Corpus!! Old time vintage surf videos, boards, and even a replica of an old surf shop with a board being planed / shaped. Nice little gift shop. Gotta check it! Free.

This museum is in a small building but has a lot of interesting things from old fashioned surf boards to surf wear and pictures they even have a coconut that was mailedfrom Hawaii to Texas back in the 70's before postal regulations ruined everything. Worth the visit!

Though I'm not much for surfing, this museum is FREE, so why not check it out. My husband thought it was pretty cool, though small. I found the gift shop more entertaining than the museum itself, so my FREE experience did cost me the amount of two coconut rings, some Sanuk sandals and a t-shirt. The location is perfect. You...

No big deal. Had some history about surfing and a few surf boards. I guess if you are into surfing it is okay. It wasn't a big deal to me. They do have a shop and I bought a shell bracelet for $4.00 which was good. The shop had a few nice things.

Yes, this was only the second surf museum I've been to (the first was in Southern California). It's free though, so even if you aren't that impressed you won't feel short-changed ;)
