A striking, all white building on the water, this art museum was voted one of the best in southern Texas. Although permanent exhibits feature art from the region, the museum is known for its rotating exhibits of fine art work in different mediums.

We just saw the Dorothy Hood retrospective (sadly it has closed). The curation and hanging of the many, many pieces was pretty world class. Although our first time here, this museum showed their 'art chops' with the Hood show. Excellent. Nice cafe. Many galleries overlook...More

At the cul-de-sac of North Shoreline Boulevard was the Art Museum of South Texas. It was easy to find right next door to the American Bank Center Convention Center. Adult admission was $8. The most intriguing exhibits were the Spanish Colonial Gallery and the Dorothy...More

The museum isn't as big as it seems outside, and you must really appreciate or study the arts to like it. The current exhibit held plenty of interactive areas that were fun to partake in and learn about. There are also areas where children's art...More

I have been to this museum a couple of times and they always land it. Almost the entire museum is the Dorothy Hood exhibit. It is always nice to see someone that you have known recognized for their body of work. There are several different...More

Check Groupon before you go though. They typically run one and it's a good deal. I also remember seeing there is a discounted/free night of the week or month as well. You can call and ask which day it is.
