We came here for the first time a year ago with our Grandson and since gone a few more times with the others and they all have had fun and learned things there. Good rainy day activity if you haven't gone.

We were early and the education center wasn't open until 1pm on Saturday but we did walk around the grounds. Beautiful Texas flowers in the landscaping and a great wooden veranda deck on the side of the building to see the water. Great ambience on the outside

The center offers visitors a look into how the local bay and estuary ecosystem works. The science on a sphere shows at 2PM daily will captivate young and old. Nice clean restrooms. HOT TIP: If you don't want to spend hours at Rockport beach (and pay the park entrance fee) park on the right just before beach entrance, and walk... More

Free! High quality displays (I have seen a lot of exhibits)! The first one is a 5-ft life size Whooping Crane. This may be the closest I will ever get to one of these reclusive endangered birds!

Love how friendly and helpful every person on the staff responds to any questions. Attended several of their NOAA lectures and plan on attending an upcoming series called Bay Talks.
