Dedicated to exploration and education

Mission, Values, and History

Mission – Engaging our community in the active exploration of science, history, and innovation in the Corpus Christi and Coastal Bend region.

Our Vision

We aspire to cultivate a community in which discoveries lead to lifelong passions for understanding the past, exploring the present, and imagining a brighter future. Our work is not bound to race, age, or faith, but by a nuanced understanding that the complexities of the past and present and the possibilities of the future are woven together and that we all play a role in creating what’s next. Though we are a science and history museum dedicated to preserving objects and stories of the past, we stand together facing forward.

Our Values

We value science and history and believe that, when combined, they hold the potential to change lives and inspire discovery, exploration, and imagination. We understand that discovery often includes exposure to new ideas that challenge perceptions and long-held “truths.” By building connections around discovery, we can deepen engagement between the museum and its resources and our community.

We value all voices. We create a welcoming and accessible space where we stand committed to equity, value diversity, and treat all people with dignity and respect.

We value our community’s confidence and trust. We will always be grounded in the evidence-based facts of science and history, and we are committed to providing a safe, trusted place for those who interact with the CCMSH community, on campus and off.

We value our staff. We will strive to be the employer-of-choice for museum professionals in the region and nationally, building a reputation for excellence and setting new standards for museums in medium sized markets. We will cultivate a variety of funding strategies to assure organizational health.

We value our philanthropic community. We will ethically steward donor investments and respect donor intent and confidentiality. We will conserve, preserve, and manage our collection assets, evaluating and applying best practices to ensure that future generations may also learn from these objects.


A home to local history and scientific advancements over time.

The Museum serves over 100,000 visitors and promotes history, science exploration, and educational programming. The Museum is also the repository for hundreds of thousands of artifacts and historically significant items in its nearly 100,000 sq. ft. facility. The Museum engages and educates the public in science and history through exhibits and programming to inspire curiosity, understanding, and an enduring thirst for knowledge.
