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, the Children's Wharf playscape, and a new children's area and playground. 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.
