  • The cutest museum! We didn't get to spend much time but we would love to return with our daughter and further explore this museum. So fun!  more »
  • I really loved this museum. Actually, I thought this museum was the best in the city. I learned the history of Corpus Christy and the Gulf Coast. The admission was only $12. This was a small museum.....  more »
  • It was a nice small museum with some interesting things to see and learn about. There was a day care or field trip there at the same time. The girls in the staff shirts that were "watching" the kids seemed to be doing anything but that. They were just running wild so the whole Science part wasn't enjoyable at all. At least they seemed to be contained in there for the short time we were visiting
  • It was okay. Kind of pricey. Was upset because everything that they have for kids to play with was broken or not functioning properly. There is an area with nothing at all. Could use some updating and proper cleaning. The outdoor play area is kind of small but nice. The music things they have out there needs to be maintained properly, my kids didmt get to enjoy because it was covered in dirt and bugs. The water feature is cute but again full of bugs. There was a field trip going on and the kids were running everywhere, and not being mindful of the little kids that were there.
