National Hurricane Museum and Science Center Master Plan

The Center is proposed to be the United States’ foremost facility focused on educating the public about the nature of hurricanes and related tropical storms, providing a rich, multifaceted exploration of these extraordinary storms. The museum will educate visitors on how hurricanes develop, their impact on land, water and buildings, and how to prepare, survive and recover. Reich+Petch developed the museum master plan, including exhibit concepts that include a high-speed wind tunnel, a hurricane ‘frozen in time’, and plenty of opportunities to explore the meteorology and the science of hurricane development.
