The Estuary Explorium provides visitors a unique opportunity to learn about our local estuaries. These new exhibits are free and open to the public Monday through Friday (8 am - 5 pm), on Saturday (10 am – 3 pm), and Sunday (11 am - 3 pm).
The Estuary Explorium houses approximately 950 square-feet of engaging exhibits that are designed to increase public awareness of the value and transitional nature of the estuarine environment. The Explorium was designed to encourage self-guided exploration of estuaries through the use of interactive exhibits that you can feel, move, and hear.
The Estuary Explorium was made possible through a grant received by the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and support from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute.
The Explorium is located in our Marine Science Education Center. Come visit us at 855 East Cotter Avenue, Port Aransas, Texas 78373.
