What a surprise to see an art institute of this caliber in Corpus Christi! Beautifully used space--incorporating indoor and out at times. Varied exhibits. Loved the black & white water/sea life photo exhibit!! Very enjoyable experience!!

Permanent collection takes up most of the spaces, but occasional inclusion of non-local traveling shows are a real joy. If you live here, probably tired of seeing the same old, same old works from the permanent collection.

Wow. This is an incredible gem of a place. It is not small, and has a very impressive permanent collection and A list traveling exhibits. You cannot miss this place if you are passing through. The entire museum district here is quite beautiful. Kid friendly!

I am a member. Exhibits are changed often enough to be interesting. Some permanent exhibits. I enjoyed hearing Ansel Adams' son discuss his father's work and enjoyed the exhibition he curated. The Cihully glass chandelier is spectacular.

Nice place. Library silence. I think probably the best part about this is the architecture. The art was fantastic, obviously, but the architecture of the building was WOW. I did quite enjoy the flowing waters outside the entrance. Also, Hester's cafe inside. I didn't even...More

For Corpus Christi, its a nice museum. It's not a big one like one you'd see in other major cities, but it still is nice to walk around. It's also inexpensive, right by the Water Gardens, and has a tasty lunch bistro with an awesome...More

Not worth it! Noting out of extraordinary. It's just like any small museum that has no major works of art.
