We loved seeing the statue, but not very much to do other than take a picture. It is right by the shore so if you are planning to walk around then it is fine to stop and see it.

As a die hard Selena fan, I have always dreamed of visiting the museum. It was soooo worth it. We were greeted with friendly smiles, Selena movie was playing in lobby. There was an introduction to the tour and then it was self-paced. I will say I felt like there could be so much more to honor her memory but... More

We went to the memorial near the harbor really nice. Stopped by the museum but did not go in, line too long. The museum is connected to the families recording studio.

My wife is a big fan and we were in Corpus so I agreed to take her there and to her gravesite. We had all our beach stuff in the bed of the truck and I didn't want to go in and leave it unattended. The girl at the front desk showed me her video monitor and a great view... More

Although the museum itself isn't impressive at all, it is a nice tribute to Selena, and the attempt to honor her is definitely there. The building is in poor shape, and is not of museum status at all. However, it does store the awards, and dresses, and even the car that the magnificent Selena owned, and I really enjoyed seeing...

As a fan you will really enjoy. Everything in the museum she owned. Her music, movie, and concerts are played throughout. Enjoyed every minute. Go early it is small area and as fans come in can get tight to view. The gift shop has everything you want to buy some items are fairly priced. Take extra funds for those that... More

It is a museum of one the greatest female entertainers and the Hispanic culture of all times! The attire collection of Selena's and her red Porsche was nice to see,Exhibits great! But the not so good part is that they will not let you take pictures of anything other than the entrance door ? That needs to change?
