File this under 'Interior Buildouts,' I suppose...

 

Some great overviews of the forthcoming Wiess Energy Hall at HMNS can be found over on Vimeo.  Latest, here:

This is so fascinating and fun !  So, where is HMNS located (and what does it stand for) ?  There was nothing in the description to indicate so far.

Just watching the video got me wanting to go see this new exhibit. Quite a production and the exhibition hall looks stunning. This is a fabulous improvement to the petroleum exhibition space. Can't wait.

Houston Museum of Natural Science.  It's located in Houston.  Museum District. 

Thanks for clarifying that for me !  I've been there so many times as a kid.  I'll have to go back and visit when I'm in town.  I know there is tons to see that has changed in the last few decades.

interesting report. Thanks for sharing. It looks like it slipped down to 9th. They were up in the top five a couple of years ago. 

Its really a nice little jewel, and I especially enjoy the mineral collection. I could look at them all day.

I think the "top 5" ranking may have been achieved by counting the Smithsonian institutions as one.

Wow this looks amazing!  I work in O&G so I get to see this out in the field but I always enjoy well done interactive exhibits.

Neat footage of the "Eagle Ford Shale Experience" around 3:20, in the latest update on Vimeo:

 

 

(^Comes across a little like the old Body Worlds attraction at Epcot's defunct Wonders of Life pavilion...)
