Latin music fans often make a pilgrimage to the Selena Museum (5410 Leopard St., 361/289-9013, www.q-productions.com , 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Mon.–Fri., closed at lunchtime, $2 admission 12 and up, $1 children). It’s not an easy place to find, however.
The museum is located downtown just off I-37 in a warehouse-type building with no sign (look for the painted mural of Selena on the outside) and was created by Corpus resident Abraham Quintanilla to honor the memory of his daughter, the famous Tejana singer who was killed by the president of her fan club in 1995.
The museum showcases many of Selena’s personal memorabilia, including the outfits and dresses she designed and wore at concerts, her red Porsche, penciled sketches, her prized egg collection, and letters of sympathy from fans across the world.
