Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History

If so, then the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is a must see.
Explore the remains of three Spanish treasure ships that ran aground on Padre Island in 1554.

Visit the Columbus Quincentenary exhibit, and learn the history of encounter and exchange beginning with Columbus' 15th century voyage to the New World. Watch the kids imagination come alive in the Interactive Children’s Wharf exhibit.
And while you're there, don't forget to take a peek into the Museum's outstanding collection of seashells and learn about the creatures that inhabit them.
Remember to look up as you tour the 'Gallery of Cultural Encounters' featuring an authentic 16th Century carved dome ceiling, originally from Castile, Spain.

To top off your visit, take a tour of the replicas of the Ships of Christopher Columbus, the Santa Maria and the Pinta on the Ship’s Plaza.
