Man was this a case of "don't judge a book by it's cover." The small building located at the entrance of Rockport Beach Park may not appear of a point of interest but within it's walls is a real treat for young and old. The Science on a Sphere display/presentation is enough to make the visit worthwhile. Literally, a sphere... More

Loved the planetary presentation, but it was short, the center hours limited, and pointed towards children.

As the former review mentions, this is state of the art presentation with a truly knowledgeable instructor. We especially enjoyed the weather information and hurricane science. Wished we had another day to go back for different subjects. Amazing that something of this quality would be free.

My husband and I attended one of the presentations. The presentation was displayed on a large spinning sphere hanging from the ceiling. That was cool. The presenter was great. They have presentations at 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and they last about 30 minutes. This attraction is free but you can donate at the door. The Texas... More

Stopped in on our way to the beach next door, walked and and sat down for the presentation. Suzie was our presenter and did an excellent job, she was humorous and very informative in her descriptions of our solar system. The half hour went by quickly, it was free admission with a donation box available at the exit. Will definitely... More

This is the 3rd year we've attended a presentation several times when in the area. This is very educational and well done. Less than in hour in length, there are presentations 5 days a week and would appeal to all ages. Don't let the fact that it is free to attend make you think it is not very worthwhile. This... More

We want to go back again! Large sphere of the earth, that lights up with different data from NOAA. Each day the presentation changes. We want to go back for the water presentation. Very well done.

Great way to spend an hour indoors learning about our planet. Not sure why someone thought this was a state park and not that interesting. It's like a planetarium in reverse and a technological breakthrough. We plan to go back for other shows as each day is different.
