This place was knocked down by Hurricane Harvey. There are no plans to fix or reopen at this time. It you want to see the Parks Office for something, go to the pool or go to Laurel St. where the offices are.

They had a great staff and an equally great "seated" presentation of our planet that you won't find elsewhere. The rest of the center has great presentations of the local waters, plants and wildlife. Well worth a visit.

This opportunity might have been missed, were it not for the recommendation of Pete Walker, the Docent at the nearby Maritime Museum. There is a very interesting 3D holographic presentation of the Earth and the various weather systems and their influence on Global Climate. This...More

Kids and I visited last Thursday and were in awe of the world exhibit and the presentation on El Nino/La Nina. Hands on exhibit is a great way to get kids interested in science.
