Nothing out of the world. But, hey its free and get to see a whole lot of different surf boards and one autographed by the beach boys. Some interesting posters and the replica of the vintage car outside is nice.

The Texas Surf Museum is in a trendy part of Corpus Christi that has great restaurants. The museum has an impressive collection of surfboards and historical surf displays.

I've never been on a surfboard, but the sport is really cool. They have many great boards from times gone by that are great to see. Much other great memorabilia from the history of local surfing. Even if you are not a surfer, you have to go see this time capsule of the local sport.

Great opportunity to learn more about the Texas surf scene/history/culture. Although small, it rivals museums in Huntington Beach, Oceanside, and to a small degree the Heritage Surf Museum in San Clemente, Southern California. Had a chance to chat with Keith, pick his brain, and learn more about the Texas surf spots. Had a great time and then polished it off... More

We took children age 11 to 6 and the dude (surf humor) operating the place was great with them. The museum is done well and has a couple of unique boards on display. We visited for about 30 minutes and would recommend it to friends and family.

Even if you've never been on a surfboard this little museum will keep you interested in the sport. Admission is free and it it is very well done in its presentation. A nice collection of older boards and their history. Some very nice pictures of various hurricanes that hit the Gulf Coast and the waves they produced. A little room... More

We really enjoyed the museum. It is small but if you like surfing it has many old school boards and photos. We drove an hour just to go see it then stayed about an hour looking and ran back out of the concrete jungle. I would do it all over again just wish it was in a better location like... More

My husband is a big surfing fan and my son is following suit so we had to make this a stop. A free, informative and fun stop on our trip! Interesting surfing facts and some pieces of history - both coastal and surf related. It was great!
