Museum of Science and History to Temporarily Close to Address Building Damage

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History will temporarily close beginning Friday, October 13, 2017 for a contractor to address building damage. Various water leaks from rain events have resulted in water damage both inside and outside of the building. To protect the public and employees, the Museum will close temporarily to allow for remediation and repair of water leaks.

A company specializing in remediation and damage recovery for museums has conducted a preliminary site visit and will begin emergency repairs on Monday, October 16, 2017. The full extent of the water damage is not currently known and will be further evaluated once removal of interior walls, brick fascia and televising of downspouts has been conducted.

Once the remediation and repairs are complete an announcement will be made regarding the reopening of the Museum. In the meantime, we appreciate the patience of our visitors and residents while the repairs are being completed.
