The Center for the Arts & Sciences is a cultural and educational complex in Clute comprised of an art gallery, science museum, planetarium and two performance theaters. Featuring work by local, regional, and international artists, the art gallery regularly updates its collection and is a great place to visit whenever you’re in the Brazosport area. The Center is also home to the longest running community theater on the Texas Gulf Coast. Brazosport Center Stages offer five major productions each season. The Center’s Museum of Natural Science contains one of the South’s largest seashell collections as well as fossils of dinosaur and mammoth bone. The museum also features Texas coastal wildlife and a unique jade and ivory collection. The BASF Planetarium offers a star show every Tuesday and on the fourth Friday of each month. Visitors can also view images from the Hubble telescope in the lobby through View-Space. There is no admission fee for the museum or art gallery. Planetarium shows are $5 for adults and $3 for students. The Center is closed on Mondays. Check the website for stage production ticket prices.
