Insights El Paso Science Museum Will Reopen next Weekend
Insights El Paso Science Center Inc. has a new home at the former Alamo Elementary School in the Segundo Barrio. Insights Museum was torn down to make way for Southwest University ballpark, but they will reopen in a new location with all new exhibits next weekend. The staff has been revamping exhibits in time for a series of summer camps beginning June 15th. The camps will have themes like stars and space exploration, chemistry, and tinkering with tools.
There will be physics-related exhibits, as well as interactive exhibits that kids loved at the old Insights Museum. The space and space exploration exhibit will come alive with a bedroom that represents El Paso astronaut Danny Olivas' teenage room. There will even be a 1970s console that was used by NASA.
Even little kids can enjoy the museum in an early childhood room designed for small children.
