Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures
Located in Corpus Christi, the Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures preserves and promotes the cultural diversity of Asian cultures. It was founded in the 1960s by Billie Trimble Chandler who spent several years working as a teacher in Asia and collected artifacts from several countries during her time overseas. Her collection served as the basis for the museum which has grown during the past few decades. The museum offers exhibits (including traveling exhibits) featuring numerous artifacts as well as educational programs, such storytelling and hands on activities.
