This museum examines the Spanish fleet that shipwrecked in 1554 just 30 miles north on Padre Island. Wreck artifacts range from silver coins to ship cannons. The museum explains nautical advances and recounts interaction between explorers and Native Americans. Murals, artifacts and hands-on activities are featured along with a Children’s Discovery Lab.
