Tex Pop is a Texas non-profit organization whose mission is to “Collect, Document, Exhibit, Preserve and Interpret South Texas Music and Music-Related Art and History.”

South Texas Popular Culture Center (Tex Pop) is San Antonio’s Music Museum for local music – all genres. We are an archive, an art gallery, and a performance venue. Tex Pop is a non-profit to “Collect, Document, Exhibit, Preserve, Interpret, and Celebrate South Texas Music and Music-Related Art and History.” The Tex Pop vision is to be the premier source of South Texas music history providing artifacts, information, and analysis of music’s impact on popular culture. In addition to rotating exhibits on a variety of music-related themes, Tex Pop regularly schedules one-day events such as speakers, discussion panels, and documentary screenings as well as music performances – by deejays spinning vinyl and musicians playing live.
