Went through the Texas Surf Museum one evening and really enjoyed it. They have quite a selection of vintage boards that give an insight into the evolution of the technical side of the sport. Also a good deal of photos/memorabilia and a video display. Really enjoyed it.

Interesting little place for those who love to surf as my husband did in his younger days. If you are interested in the sport, check it out. It is free and won't take long to explore.

This has the best south Texas surfing history you will never forget. You will learn so much about South Texas coast and surfing it will make your head spin. Even if your not a surfer, you will gain so much history about the coast and its visitors.

Nothing out of the world. But, hey its free and get to see a whole lot of different surf boards and one autographed by the beach boys. Some interesting posters and the replica of the vintage car outside is nice.

I've never been on a surfboard, but the sport is really cool. They have many great boards from times gone by that are great to see. Much other great memorabilia from the history of local surfing. Even if you are not a surfer, you have to go see this time capsule of the local sport.

Great opportunity to learn more about the Texas surf scene/history/culture. Although small, it rivals museums in Huntington Beach, Oceanside, and to a small degree the Heritage Surf Museum in San Clemente, Southern California. Had a chance to chat with Keith, pick his brain, and learn more about the Texas surf spots. Had a great time and then polished it off... More

We took children age 11 to 6 and the dude (surf humor) operating the place was great with them. The museum is done well and has a couple of unique boards on display. We visited for about 30 minutes and would recommend it to friends and family.
