They had a lizard, and two geckos, and a toad. I watched a video on Hurricane Ike and did a TV weather report. And best of all, the house was not packed with screaming first graders.

A small museum in a house, but lots of interactive stuff for the kids to do. We went with a school field trip so we had a tour guide. He made it fun for the kids and invited them to participate in his demonstrations frequently.

if unfamiliar with Texas weather. A small museum that doesn't take you long to explore. A lot of information about hurricanes and a chance to practice your weather forecasting skills. Good for a short visit.
