Life animal tanks
Brazos Bend State Park, located south of Houston, is one of Texas’ busiest state parks. One popular feature is the visitor center where folks learn about the natural and cultural history of the area and even get to touch baby alligators. Recently Texas Parks and Wildlife Department decided it was time to give the popular visitor center a face lift. HW Exhibits developed an exhibit plan that reimagined the space with an open concept that allows visitors to flow in and around several live-animal tanks, an alligator skeleton, and colorful graphics and interactives. Our design scheme was inspired by mid-century modern summer camp iconography. Once the plan was approved, HW Exhibits used exhibit content provided by TPWD to design a suite of interpretive panels that included custom illustrations and infographics. We worked with one of our preferred vendors to construction and install the new exhibits, which opened to the public in September 2021.
