  • $9 for two tickets to World Trekkers: Egypt on Friday, May 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (up to an $18 value)
  • $18 for four tickets to World Trekkers: Egypt on Friday, May 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (up to a $36 value)

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

Seven days a week, the Houston Museum of Natural Science cultivates knowledge with interactive exhibits that shuttle minds into such far-flung realms as tropical rainforests and outer space. Permanent exhibits house everything from the skeletons of brachiosauruses in the recently expanded Morian Hall of Paleontology to artifacts from ancient Egypt and the Americas. Housed inside three stories of glass, the museum's butterfly habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around the globe, which frolic around a 50-foot waterfall, flutter through exotic plants, and—most amazingly—pull nickels from behind children’s ears. Visitors can also gaze skyward in the Burke Baker Planetarium, which casts more than 10 daily shows with curve-mirror projection technology. Eyes marvel at the planetarium's 30'x18' full-dome digital theater, capable of transporting families to the aurora borealis in the Arctic Circle or to the nougat-flavored center of a black hole.
