Our day at The Art Museum of South Texas

Before we made the decision to move here, our family were frequent visitors to Corpus Christi and as we are also art lovers it was surprising to us that this was only our second visit to The Art Museum of South Texas.

The water gardens located right outside the museum

It’s a fantastic museum and we love it but there have been a few changes since our last visit. The last time we came here was a children’s area with books,puppets and props to play with. That has since been changed to hold various (albeit awesome) sculptures that you can view against the backdrop of the bay. We liked the sculptures very much but the kids were a little disappointed.

The main display currently up (at the time of our visit) is one on portraits and there were a lot of works that really stopped us in our tracks.

COCO inspecting art


We feel like it important to expose the girls to art as much as possible and there was a lot to look at and explore.



We especially liked going outside to view a couple of larger sculptures and a very cool chair we had to get pictures on.


Right before we left the museum Catz saw a staircase we had not been up and wanted to have a look. I’m so glad she spotted that -upstairs there was a exhibit of graphic novels.

There were lots of original artwork from the books of the girl’s favorite authors. Here’s Coco beside the Raina Telgemeier display.

And here is Catz in front of the Mark Crilley display.

All in all it was a great way to spend Father’s day and we plan on coming back again.
