Wiess Energy Hall

Entering the new Wiess Energy Hall, visitors will step off of the elevator into a dynamic floor of a 21st century offshore drilling rig populated by a motley crew of sci-fi robots. Near the center of the cavernous new hall, a replica of a tricone rotary drill bit-fourteen feet in diameter-spins vigorously overhead. The Hall spans 30,000 square feet-almost the size of a football field. Joining the completely redesigned "classic" displays will be a bonanza of entirely new exhibits, making the new hall the most contemporary, comprehensive and technologically advanced exhibition on the science and technology of energy anywhere in the world. OPENS TO THE PUBLIC NOVEMBER 20Learn More
