Held in the museum’s Grand Hall, the World Trekkers series hosts family-friendly cultural festivals, each with activities based around a different country. Its Egypt night will feature Egyptian crafts, face painting, Egyptian Eyes by Cat Eyes Makeup Artistry, cuisine, a photo op with Cleopatra, King Tut, and two live camels as well as belly dancers and a DJ. For an additional fee, visitors can hop in the passport photo booth and create a World Trekkers passport, which is stickered and stamped whenever you attend a festival and complete a craft.
Houston Museum of Natural Science
The Houston Museum of Natural Science Sugar Land cultivates knowledge with interactive exhibits that shuttle minds into such far-flung realms as tropical rainforests and outer space. The museum's Sugar Land outpost boasts a fossilized ecosystem of it's own with a recently updated paleontology exhibit, and the 2,000-gallon salt water aquarium glitters with triggerfish and live sea anemones. And an hour south of Houston waits a direct link to the night sky: the George Observatory, where three powerful telescopes give visitors the chance to view the nougat-flavored stripes of Jupiter.
