workers were working on the lighting, the graffiti that people are talking about, is just people leaving notes on the floor dedicating it to her.

Passing through Corpus Christi we visited the Selena museum. I enjoyed seeing her recording studio and personal items (Grammy, red Porsche, fan letters from around the world). In addition, many key pieces from Selena’s wardrobe are displayed in the studio.

I did not know who Selena was prior to the museum. Apparently, there is a movie that can probably inform you pretty well about her life and accomplishments. The museum is a short tour and has several of her outfits and pictures. There's also decently clean bathrooms and a drinking fountain. It's not very long, only requires maybe 30 minutes.

In this spot, there is just the Selena sculpture and a sound box in repeat mode telling her story. The surround area is a must seen, so I think you can use the spot as a reference for a beautiful location and, since you are there, take a look in the sculpture.

Visited the Selena museum for the second time, my 10 yr old daughter loves Selena! Enjoyed the short presentation then we were able to see displays at our own pace. Loved it!

Very historical. Information was interested but wish there was more to the monument. Maybe some music can be played in the background of course, not all the time, but sometime while people are looking and reading the information.
