Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing experience and our guide Jake was awesome. Took his time to answer questions along the way and has a great sense of humor. We drove 12 hours from New Mexico to cross this experience off our bucket list and so glad we did. We love selena and Jake treated us just like she would always say her fans were #1. Thank u

Admission was very reasonable and I got a super cute tshirt of Selena in the gift shop. Loved looking at all her outfits and the photos of her wearing them. I did ask if they had a full size figure of Selena like a wax statute and an employee said yes they do but it was in Hollywood. :( One other disappointing note is Selena’s father who sat at the front where fans enter. He allowed a mom to take his picture with her child but when I asked if he could have his picture taken With my husband he told us we had to wait until the end of our tour. Humph. We didn’t go back and try.

This was a great time. I had no clue she won so many awards. The guide was amazing. Great time. Highly recommended. Must see if you're in the area.

The price is great, only $5 a person and there is so much to see. I had no idea that she has won so many awards in her young life. So much memorabilia. The prices in the gift were a little pricy for me, though.

We drove from Illinois to Corpus Christi so my daughter can go to the Selena Museum. We were able to accomplish the tour in less than an hour. Staff were extremely friendly, engaging and answered questions. They are very organized and have a specific and rapid way of running the show. Parking is free and can be difficult for some but it worked out. The beginning of your visit starts in the recording studio. English and Spanish is available. The rest of the visit will be self guided. You can see Selena’s clothes, awards, make up, toys and other important things and events that have been preserved for her, her family and fans.
For us, this museum was fun but this is still a talented human’s life that was lost and is kept as a memory so be ready for it to make you emotional. The presentation is well laid out, easy to read the information and is done very respectfully. There is a red outfit with boots that are interesting to see because you can tell Selena danced in these shoes. We were most moved by her private items such as make up and eggs.
The iconic purple outfit needs its own special section - it is definitely pretty to see in person. When you are finished in the main museum you have an option to visit the gift shop then leave. Her tour bus is in the parking lot. We bought our teens lots of clothes, pictures and jewelry from the shop. It appears sizes run out early in the day so be aware of this.
We would return to this location for a visit. Her grave site and statue memorial are also in this town about 20-30 min away.

I loved it so much! I feel so blessed to have met Abraham! I cried the whole time and was in awe!
It is a small musuem but filled with all things Selena. My kids are huge fans too and got to get things from the gift shop.
If you are a Selena fan, you must hit this up!!

Finding the museum was not hard to get there but if you don’t pay attention you may miss it. A bunch of Selena memorabilia and souvenirs to buy. My daughter who is a big fan definitely enjoyed it.

A small museum dedicated to the late Tejana singer Selena, run by her family. Includes a studio where she recorded, and a room of her awards, costumes, and other memorabilia. Although not particularly a fan (although familiar with her story), I found it to be nicely put together and surprisingly moving. Well worth an hour of your time if you're a fan, or even if you're not.
