THE NATION'S FIRST WEATHER MUSEUM
Making the Community Weatherwise!
Origins - The nation's first Weather Museum was founded in 2005 by Jill F. Hasling in memory of her father, Dr. John C. Freeman, both Certified Consulting Meteorologists and Fellows of the American Meteorological Society. Jill and her father founded the Weather Research Center in 1987, a non- profit educational and research center. One of the Center's outreach project was to start the nation's first weather museum. The Museum opened its doors in the Houston Museum District on April 21, 2006. Since openning its doors the Weather Museum has had visitors from every state in the United States and from over 30 countries around the world.
In 2014, the Weather Museum is relocating so it can continue to grow and serve more in the community.
The Weather Museum inspries students through science experiments and presentations. Programs which emphasize science and mathematics are available both at the Museum and through site visits to partner organizations. These programs include Weather Camp, Weather Labs, Weather Classes and Student Summer Internships.
