The meteorologists at the Weather Research Center are best meteorologists in the industry! The WRC meteorologists are the most positive too as they educate Houston on our exciting Gulf Coast Weather on Positively Houston News! We feel very fortunate to be affiliated with this very knowledgeable and professional team.

The Weather Research Center was a huge inspiration for our Son, age 10 to pursue a career as a meteorologist. He attended weather camp this past summer. He really enjoyed it and learned many things about hurricanes and tornados. He was sent home with papers, experiments the class did, and mementos to keep. This program is both fun and educational and set children in a positive road in life. Since the weather camp he joined the school announcement team and Science Olympia. For our family winter vacation we are schedule to visit New Orleans and take the “Katrina tour” and afterward visit Galveston to visit the 1900 storm museum. I’m proud of him!! Thank you WRC!! I would highly recommend the Weather Research Center...we will attend the summer of 2011 as well! And participate in any additional program WRC offers.

I am always thirsting for knowledge, so I love to visit museums, especially new and interesting ones. Originally there to do research for my website WeareverTheWeather.com, I was very pleasantly surprised with my experience. The amount of information they provided in addition to the hands-on exhibits kept me at the museum for a couple of hours and also interacting with other visitors that day (a group from out of town, incidentally). One of my favorite exhibits was the Hurricane Ike information. I was abroad for a month during the time of the disaster and had only scattered reports from other travelers and news when I could get it on my hotel television to know what was happening back home. The Weather Museum exhibit gave me a thorough idea of what happened so I could better appreciate what my family and friends had to unfortunately go through. I plan to visit again and will bring my nieces and nephews to learn and enjoy!
