Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History
The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History offers a chance to interact with everything from geology and biology to sunken ships and American history, all through the lens of South Texas examples. The 100,000-square-foot building contains many standing exhibits, a theater featuring local productions, and the Children's Wharf playscape. Artifacts include one of the oldest shipwrecks in the Western hemisphere—the resting place of the San Esteban and Espíritu Santo—which plunged, storm-wracked, into the waters around Padre Island in 1554. The museum even boasts a Smithsonian-designed exhibit that explores the Seeds of Change, the five things brought to America via ship that changed its shape forever, including corn, potatoes, disease, horses, and a competent cartographer.
organized well and is easy to self guide through. It is very family friendly and seems to have something to offer everyone.Alisha29, TripAdvisor, 7/3/13
What a fun collection covering the vastly different history of the South Texas Coast. I learned so many things and enjoyed every minute of it.beachbird123, TripAdvisor, 7/15/13
