Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History

Last week, my roommate and I skipped work and went to Corpus Christi’s Museum of Science and History instead. I brought my camera with me of course, to show you all of the lovely things you missed. Whether you’re in Corpus Christi specifically to visit the Museum of Science and History and you’re looking for a little sneak peak, or just have a knack for museums around the world… let me show you what we saw!

If you look up dik-diks on google, they’re actually really adorable! Their skulls make them look demonic, though.

We saw lots of lovely rocks, crystals and various gems.

Our city is a refinery town; so of course our museum has a small model of one of the refineries behind glass. I’m not entirely sure which one it was. Either Flint Hills, Citgo, or Valero. I’m kind of thinking it was the Flint Hills once though.

I used to volunteer here when I was 14 or 15, and I worked in the animal lab feeding and caring for the animals. Back then, there were live alligators, crocodiles, snakes and turtles. This time was mildly disappointing because there weren’t any live animals at all. Bummer.

How would this chandelier look in my dining room?

Okay… how would this one look? A little too fancy for my blood. Lose the crystals, then we’ll talk. Still gorgeous!

The Dome Room

The Museum of Science and History has a luxurious room with a high ceiling. The Dome Room was more my style, decoratively and architecturally. It was my favorite room, hands down. The ceiling was mesmerizing to stare at; too bad the pictures didn’t come out good. 🙁

I loved the scene rooms!

I’m not a fan of weapons, or guns… but I loved the exhibits for them at the museum. They looked like shipping crates! Genius.

Look at him! Look at his cute little satisfied face!

This was an old-style doctor’s office scene room. Definitely one of the things I was interested in the most.  The door was locked so I was looking through the glass (which is how it’s supposed to be, but you know I had to try to get in there).

My roommates daughter made electricity during her private science show. She also made a cloud.   IMG_1886 IMG_2002 IMG_1810 IMG_1859 IMG_1971

The greatest surprise was when we went outside, however. They had tiny little houses out there for kids to play on, in, and around.

We Went Batty

I know this post is all about the Museum of Science and History, but the surrounding area is equally as stunning. I saw the Harbor Bridge from many, many angles. It’s about to be modernized soon. The bridge you see, and the bridge I know will be gone for good.

Next, I got so close to the water I could have fallen in, just to snap a picture of the U.S.S Lexington! I’m so glad we played hooky today, lol! It was fun!
