The Venue

Wiess Energy Hall | HMNS
5555 Hermann Park Dr.,
Houston, TX 77030

The Wiess Energy Hall is the most technologically-advanced exhibition on the science and technology of energy anywhere in the world. Visitors enter the expansive 30,000 square feet exhibit — almost the size of a football field — by stepping out of the elevator onto a 21st-century offshore drilling rig. 


The energy value chain is brought to life in “Energy City,” a 2,500-square-foot 3-D landscape representing Houston, the surrounding coastal waters, and the terrain of southeast and central Texas.

The Unconventional Hydrocarbon Revolution enlightens visitors on how shale oil and shale gas have transformed the U.S. energy picture and delves into the growing importance of renewable energy sources, as well as experimental and cutting-edge technology happening right now — and in the future.


Finally, the “Energy Jukebox” featuring “PowerPlayz,” a collection of ten inescapably catchy songs that explore topics including conservation, renewable energy, biomass, hydrogen power, nuclear fission, oil, natural gas, unconventional hydrocarbons, electricity and thermonuclear fusion.
