“Wonderful Tribute Celebrating the Life & Times of Selena”
Review of Selena Museum

A Wonderful Tribute Celebrating the Life & Times of Selena. Very cool to have assembled Selena's personal effects. Thank you for putting it all together for her fans. I became a fan after she died a terrible tragedy. A true visionary and a true cross-over entertainer. Very touching and emotional. Rest in Peace La Flor.

It's only $3 admission and parking is free. Go to her Statue by the Sea and her Gravesite as well. Went to eat at her favorite restaurant Hi-Ho, but it was closed for vacation.

This is the best museum in the history of museums, it's history on the entire Quintanilla family, not just Selena, is beyond amazing! I have been many times and I always enjoy going back in and seeing familiar faces and buying Selena merch as well. Anytime I come to Corpus, this is the one place I know for certain I will return too again and again. I mean as the saying goes...Anything for Selenas!

I have a positive review to offer, but I also want to respond, too, to the review below by "Solar-Sailor" (June 9, 2018), who called it "crappy," a "joke," etc.

I couldn't disagree more.

For a mere $3 per person, you get to go and learn about an accomplished Latina pop star's world. You get to see her recording studio, desk, performance costumes (which were amazing), awards, videos, and photographs. And you might even see some of her relatives working there (I saw her dad, Abraham-cool, right?). You realize how hard she and her family worked on their music. You see it in every stitch of clothing and every regional award they won (think of all the travel and hotels!).

This is a site for remembering a pop icon from Corpus Christi and to do so among many of her true fans. It doesn't claim to be the Getty in L.A., the Louvre in Paris, Graceland, or any other $20+ type of museum. Rather, it tells a more focused and simple story, of the rise of a Tejano band from South Texas, and how its lead singer, Selena, was taken too soon. The Selena Museum is very moving and interesting, and Corpus Christi should be proud and supportive, regardless of skin color or cultural affiliation.

Standing here by Selena's life-size statue took my breath away. I suggest to anyone who is a fan or just knew of her to come experience standing here.

if you were a fan of Selena and wanted to remember who she was and what she did then this would be a place to visit. if you don't really know her history or followed her career then do not take the time to visit. You should know something about her and family or it is not worth the visit - Definitely a personal interest must exist
