Family Day at Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum
July 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Family Day: Rigs to Reefs
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
Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum is located at 20th St & Harborside Dr.
On the second Saturday of every month from 10:00am to 3:00pm, the Ocean Star celebrates Family Day. Each Family Day focuses on a different theme that relates to the oil and gas industry. The information is presented at a student’s level using hands-on activities or experiments.
We encourage parents to bring their children aboard and experience family-learning and quality time at a reduced cost. Children under 18 years of age are admitted FREE with a paying chaperone. Check out our Events Calendar or our Facebook Page to see what this month’s activity will be!
