“Very educational.”

Bay Education Center
Ranked #8 of 43 things to do in Rockport

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.

The Bay Education Center is chock full of interesting information about the Texas coastal environment. It is small but very well done. It's also free! There are educational seminars at 2pm and 3pm. They are presented by an enthusiastic and well informed retired teacher, using a state of the art spherical screen to enhance the information. It shouldn't be missed!

Interesting information in such a small place. Worth a visit. Check for hours before stopping by. Liked the hurricane information.
