Wonderful Free Museum!
May 2020 • Family
Had time to kill and I’m a museum junkie; immediately I was intrigued. Quickly found parking and the entrance which is behind the executive surf club (who did have a live band playing!). Lucky for us they had a Vietnam War Surf exhibition on display. Having recently been to Vietnam this was extra exciting. Small location but very interesting history. We donated a few dollars because we love seeing locations like this do well. Make the time to swing by and see the exhibits, even 20 minutes of your trip is well worth it.

It’s free

Address is the “back” door, either walk through the restaurant or walk around the block to access the right door.

Super free museum, donation box’s inside. The history is amazing and they did a nice job of laying it out. A must do even if you have no interest in surfing.

Surfin' in the USA!

It was a free museum. Worth the stop if you have the time. When we went there was a traveling display featuring China Beach. I did not know about it. It was fascinating to learn about it, the music and other history of that time period.. For those not sure, during the Vietnam war. I am glad that the men and women were able to have some surf time during their service. Thank you to those serving our country.

Texas Surf Museum is a great place to learn about Texas surfers and the history behind those who competed. It was a great reminder of what our beaches looked like early 70's to present and the way we dressed for the beach. So much history in a small shop and short film clips at most stations narrating the events or person being interviewed. I would love to surf but my long legs and bad balance together will not allow it to happen. I love going to the north jetty to watch the surfers self compete every weekend. Lets not forget Bob Hall pier.

This was a cool museum that is a little hard to find. If you park on the street, you’ll need to go through the restaurant to the courtyard.
There is a surfing in Vietnam during the war exhibit, a bunch of boards on display with a blurb about the builder and/or owner, a gift shop, one or two interactive displays, lots of pictures and stories.
Staff was friendly and informative.
Tip: Museum is free but takes donations.

Fun Stop!

Stopped in by chance and it was really a fun place to visit. The exhibit was about surfing at China Beach during Vietnam and they had some interesting videos of vets sharing their experiences. Admission is a donation so bring some cash. The place is small but definitely worth the visit.

I was there to look around and buy some t-shirts. It's in a back lot area with some other small stores,, just look for the old "Moon Dogie" car :)

If you love surfing......this place is for you!

My family loves surfing. The museum is a quaint place with all kinds of Texas surf history. Lot's of autographed posters, boards, etc. Some for sale with Robert August signatures. Very, very cool if you're into the Endless Summer time frame and surf culture. Also has some great pics of swells from storms with guys shredding on 10 footers in the Gulf. Great t shirts and super nice people. All for a donation!
