LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - The city has opened the doors to the new Laredo Water Museum Learning Center, located inside the Jefferson Water Treatment Plant.
The facility is an interactive museum that keeps adults and kids entertained.
The museum was designed to teach the community about how to use water.
The museum has so many buttons to push and every time you push a button, you are bound to learn something about the river, water use or even how water battles affect the ecosystem.
The space includes a tunnel where you can learn where our water comes from and the process to clean it.
The exhibits are designed to be accessible to children, but it’s also aiming to educate adults on how to conserve water.
City officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new facility.
The facility has a lot of little surprises. For example, it even has a competitive game that shows you how much effort it takes to pump water from a well.
The city is open to the public and it is free of charge.
You can visit the museum any day between Monday through Friday from eight in the morning until five at night.
