The local culture and history of Corpus Christi can be seen across the city in its public art, its variety of museums, and multiple year-round events that showcase the rich and diverse history of this coastal community.
Art Museums & Galleries 
The Art Center of Corpus Christi hosts family art time during which koi fish windsocks, city silhouette paintings, and monogram collages are just part of the local artwork on display.
The Art Museum of South Texas is renowned for its rotating and traveling exhibits as well as the building in which it is housed. The modern facility looks out over the majestic Corpus Christi Bay. Located in the Sports, Entertainment and Arts District (the SEA District), the AMST is a quality attraction worthy of bigger cities. It should not be missed.
Art is so prevalent in Corpus Christi that it’s on almost every street corner. Explore the murals in downtown Corpus Christi, an outdoor museum of local and cultural art that continues to grow in vibrancy and color.
Community theaters
Both the Harbor Playhouse and Aurora Arts Theater delight live audiences year-round with plays, musicals, dancing, acting, and top-notch choreography. Great for date night or a family outing.
Symphony and ballet
The Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra and the Corpus Christi Ballet run their owns seasons but also team up for a grand production of “The Nutcracker” each year. The orchestra also backs the ballet in its major spring production.
History museums 
There is no better way to learn the history of Corpus Christi than to visit the places where objects of historical and cultural interest are stored and exhibited. The Corpus Christi Science and History Musuem will give your kids a chance to interact with science one on one as well as the historical background of the region.
The Texas Surf Museum is a gnarly way to discover the secrets behind the area’s surfing culture, while the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay takes you aboard one of the most heroic and historic aircraft carriers in the nation. Take a golf cart ride up the gangway to displays of retired aircraft, films, and even a ghost.
