The mission of the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is to present the story of the cultural crossroads of the New World. With a unique confluence of natural history, science, people and environments, the South Texas area has served as a stage for the ongoing discovery of the Americas. Through innovative programs in history, culture, and science, the Museum is committed to enlarging a shared understanding of our history and heritage as well as the impact and importance of science to our lives. By telling this story, the Museum will inspire a thirst for knowledge, context, and understanding.

The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History has been a vital cultural and educational institution since 1957. Since that time it has enlarged its facility to over 85,000 square feet, preserving more than 87,000 artifacts and objects and over 400,000 archival photographs and records. The museum has been accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1973.
