Centennial House

Built in 1849, this mansion was originally the home of Senator Forbes Britton. Constructed with local brick and scored masonry, the house got its name after the estate's 100th anniversary in 1949. At the time it was built the former senator could see the wharf from the house. Marvel at the petticoat tables in the foyer, the odd placement of light switches on the floorboards, and the spellbinding porcelain doll collection upstairs, for the house conveys different stories pertaining to different eras.

USS Lexington

The USS Lex was once used in military expeditions throughout the world, but today it functions as a floating museum. It is docked pleasantly on the Corpus Christi Bay, and it's quite impressive to see from any angle. To board, you are whisked away in a free shuttle that takes you right to the ship's hangar entrance. The tour allows visitors to see the flight deck, the control and navigation rooms and even the captain's quarters. There is also a mega-theater on board as well as a flight simulator and an interactive exhibit entitled 'Virtual Battle Stations'.

Selena Museum

Quite possibly the most famous musician to come out of Corpus Christi, Selena Quintanilla's life journey can be seen through this museum. Her family built the museum after receiving letters from fans expressing their interest in a museum to commemorate the legendary Tejano singer. On display you will find several of Selena's stage costumes, most of which she designed herself, awards and other memorabilia. The museum even has Selena's red Porsche for visitors to see. All admission revenue goes to the Selena Foundation, which helps to aid children in need and provides scholarships to promising students.
