The Weather Museum

weather-museum1When the country’s first national museum dedicated to weather opened its doors on April 22, 2006, Simonton donated more than five dozen hurricane-resistant Simonton StormBreaker Plus® vinyl windows to replace the older existing windows in the facility, which is located in the historic Houston Museum District.

A project of the Weather Research Center, the Texas-based education and research organization, the John C. Freeman Weather Museum is a facility where people of all ages can come to learn about the weather, its history and public safety. “Understanding the science behind weather formation and the ways in which storms develop is crucial to all of us so that lives and property can be protected,” according to Jill Hasling, CCM, executive director of the Weather Research Center.
