A striking, all white building on the water, this art museum was voted one of the best in southern Texas. Although permanent exhibits feature art from the region, the museum is known for its rotating exhibits of fine art work in different mediums.

Great way to spend two to three hours on a hot afternoon. The Outwin 2016 Portraiture Exhibit was very interesting. Very easy access and close to eating establishments after viewing.

While the museum is nice, it is probably not something the children will enjoy. It is not interactive, and it is not the Louvre, but for 40 some-things tired of the beach, it will do for 90 minutes in air conditioning. The best part of...More

As an artist, I make it a point, whenever possible to visit art museums and local art galleries wherever we go. This museum was a huge disappointment. PROS: cool entrance, and a few pieces from major artists CONS: almost everything else. Local art was questionable....More

We just saw the Dorothy Hood retrospective (sadly it has closed). The curation and hanging of the many, many pieces was pretty world class. Although our first time here, this museum showed their 'art chops' with the Hood show. Excellent. Nice cafe. Many galleries overlook...More

At the cul-de-sac of North Shoreline Boulevard was the Art Museum of South Texas. It was easy to find right next door to the American Bank Center Convention Center. Adult admission was $8. The most intriguing exhibits were the Spanish Colonial Gallery and the Dorothy...More
