CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi has a rich history and the Museum of Science and History is a great place to learn about our city's past.

It is a tale of triumph and tragedy.

Carol Rehtmeyer, president and CEO of the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is here to tell us about two upcoming exhibits.

First, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, the history and the importance of the South Texas cowboy will be discussed at a fundraiser at the museum. Those who attend will want to wear their boots because there will be country music, country exhibits and even a western-themed photo booth.

They also will have an informative exhibit involving the 1919 Corpus Christi hurricane from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday . Not many are aware of the event as this is definitely an opportunity to learn how it changed the city.
