Insights El Paso Science Center Inc. reopens

EL PASO, Texas - The highly anticipated reopening of El Paso's science museum is here.

The Insights El Paso Center opened its door to the public Monday with a soft opening.

Its newest location is at 521 Tays St. in south-central El Paso.

Visitors can check out the exhibits from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through Thursday.

Some of the exhibits making a comeback are the polling machine, stem trains, Tesla coil and the swirling tornado maker, said Mandy Kirchgessner, executive director of the science center. There also are new exhibits called wave lengths and emergency services, she said.

Summer camps, which started Monday, run from Monday to Thursday. For more information, call 915-534-0000.

Admission: $5.50 for adults, $3.50 for children 4-12, and $4.50 for military and seniors. Family memberships start at $35

The original Insights museum, a nonprofit center, was torn down in March 2013 to make way for the construction of the baseball stadium in Downtown.
