Museum Mission

The Art Museum of South Texas is more than simply a gallery. It’s an artistic venue with a broader mission to both operate educational facilities and host displays for the general public. The museum’s overarching goal is to advance knowledge, appreciation, and awareness of the visual arts that extends to residents of South Texas and visitors alike. It’s a place to explore new mediums, color combinations, and artistic endeavors in equal measure.

Beyond the Exhibits

A trip to the Art Museum of South Texas is a chance for visitors to enjoy a unique, interactive experience as well. Beyond the traditional exhibit halls and displays, the museum also hosts an artcade interactive space on the first floor where families can have hands-on fun with activities including painting, drawing, animation, and more. The museum also houses a digital studio within this creation station which offers a touchscreen experience complete with photo scanners and printers. After visitors have had a chance to enjoy browsing the museum and making the most of interactive fun, they can head over to the gift shop and pick up a souvenir to commemorate their visit. The gift shop is stocked with everything from books and jewelry to posters and trinkets for little ones as well. If all of the museum fun has left you with an appetite to attend to, making time for a stop at Elizabeth’s is a must. This on-site café provides guests with great harbor views and a savory menu to match. All day specialties include seasonal flatbreads, homemade hummus, burrata, and lemon rosemary cake, just to name a few.
