Next to a great little seafood restaurant, Executive Surf Club (dog friendly patio), this free donation based museum is a great stop. Interesting exhibits and a couple short videos, just walk around and enjoy.

I don't know much about surfing but it was interesting to find out that there's a history of surfing on the Texas Gulf Coast. If you know more about surfing you'll probably love it. Admission is free, so if you're in the area, stop in.

Attended a private dinner for 30 at the Surf Museum. Great food and a great space for a small gathering. Unique and has some great history on the walls!

The museum is rather small but I'm not a surfer so it may be of interest to surfers. If you're in the area you may want to go but I certainly wouldn't travel too far to go.

As an old surfer from S. California, i really enjoyed the surf museum. The evolution of boards, from the long board to radicle "sticks", back to the long board and now a variety depending on where you surf. The surf museum captures it all.

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...More
