CORPUS CHRISTI - Parts of the Museum of Science and History could be shut down if the museum doesn't get money for much needed repairs.
The museum has a leaky roof that needs to be repaired, along with storm drain issues.
Museum director Rick Stryker says that every time it rains, the roof leaks into the museum.
He says some exhibits have to be moved.
We spoke with Stryker on the phone, who told us, "I am put in a position that the stuff I really care about, the artifacts and objects in the museum collection, are in danger. And it's terrifying to me."
A $1.6 million dollar bond is on the ballot, that would be used for museum repairs if it's approved by voters.
If the bond doesn't pass, Stryker says certain parts of the museum could be shut down.
