  • So, the positives of this museum: -good mix of display subjects (history, science, kids) -open layout, not too crowded -interesting and varied displays Now, the not so positives: -majority of kids' ar...  more »
  • You should know that the hands on "Science" museum is great for kids 6 and under. Older kids will probably be bored. We visited on a Tuesday and a lot of exhibits were not available and that was disap...  more »

  • Nice museum. It's small but packs a lot to see. Don't expect lots of huge exhibits but it's very interesting what they do carry. Was hoping for a dinosaur exhibit for my son but only got a small section. Otherwise, nice and quaint for the price of admission.
  • We were pleasantly surprised at how great this place was. There were plenty of things to do for both our young kids, and the history exhibits were very nicely done. The kids science area was amazing and had lots of activities related to biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy. The outdoor playground was a plus. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was no place to buy or eat a snack/lunch but I understand the museum likely isn't large enough to support something like that. Overall it was a great experience. Very well priced, too!
  • A wonderful experience. Beautifully displayed . Took me 2 1/2 hours to go through. You can leave and come back just keep your bracelet on. Cost was 10.95 plus tax. Hours are from 10am to 5pm. You can take pictures just no flash.
  • Loveeee it. It looks small from the outside but is has a lot of rooms. Love their kids section a lot to learn.
  • Very clean and organized exhibits. I wish all of the interactive activities were functioning but other than that this place was great for my family to enjoy

Where to stay in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi offers an array of lodging throughout the city. Seaside condos, hotels, and motels clustered around the northern point of North Padre Island and spread along Mustang Island offer views over the Gulf of Mexico, and you can also set up a tent or park an RV at one of the campgrounds on the latter. An additional cluster of hotels, motels, and cottages sits along the west side of Corpus Christi Bay, providing convenient access to both the water and many of the city's prime attractions. The numerous national-chain hotels and motels lining South Padre Island Drive serve as viable options if you plan to divide your time between the barrier islands and downtown.
