Opening of Hamman Hall of Texas Coastal Ecology 
Friday, May 22
The Texas coast is a natural treasure to many Texans, but few know about its ecologic and economic importance. The new Hamman Hall of Texas Coastal Ecology will show visitors how a healthy environment is paramount to maintaining and sustaining a healthy economy. 

Opening of Secret Ocean 3D
Friday, May 22
Filmed over 3 years in vibrant marine environments from the Bahamas to Fiji, the first 3D theater film directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau provides a compelling breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all-that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. 

Opening of Fate of the Maya
Friday, May 22
Explore ancient Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Tikal, and Palenque; experiencing the elegance and power of these great Maya cities. Watch astronomers observing the heavens to predict the future. Then visit lagoons and sink holes to discover what destroyed this advanced civilization — a fate that still threatens great urban centers around the world. It’s a beautiful story for those who love to explore ancient civilizations and discover lessons carved in silt and stone.
