Staff is friendly and seem to enjoy educating people about asian culture. Which I love since that's the reason I went there. They have very beautiful displays and authentic asian stuff in their gift shop. WILL BE BACK.

This little museum is pretty interesting, but the displays need some work and organization. Perhaps that has been taken care of. It has been nearly a year since we attended.

I visited the Asian Museum while in Corpus recently and I was like a kid in a free candy store. I collect and sell Japanese dolls, porcelain, and hakata dolls. This was the most amazing collection I have ever seen anywhere. Corpus Christi is truly blessed to have such a fine museum of Asian items and we would certainly steal... More
