Spend the Day with the Fam During the Interactive Rigs to Reefs Exhibit at Ocean Star

On the second Saturday of every month from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Ocean Star celebrates Family Day. Each Family Day focuses on a different theme that relates to the offshore industry. The information is presented at a student’s level using activities or experiments.

On Saturday, July 13th, come learn what happens to platforms when they are no longer used to produce offshore oil and gas. In some cases, they apply and are accepted into the Rigs to Reef program, where they are converted into artificial reef habitats. What types of sea creatures call these structures home? Create a Deep Sea porthole –a unique view of an amazing underwater habitat.

We encourage parents to bring their children aboard and experience family learning and quality time at a reduced cost.

Children 18 years of age and younger are admitted free with a paying chaperone. Please note this special discount is designed for individual ticket sales and not to be combined with guided group tours or other museum programs.
