Unearthed from imperial tombs and beneath Buddhist monasteries, the gold dragons, fine ornaments, and tomb demons that comprise Warriors, Tombs, and Temples: China’s Enduring Legacy glitter alongside four life-size terra cotta warriors originally built to guard the mausoleums of China’s first emperors. From Friday, March 30–Sunday, September 3, the impeccably conserved warriors, alongside 200 ancient artifacts, tell the story of the elite classes living in China’s capital cities. Admission to the special exhibit also grants visitors entry to the exhibit hall and all permanent exhibits.
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 exhibit halls 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 Cockrell Butterfly Center habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around the globe, which frolic around a 50-foot waterfall, and flutter through exotic plants. 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.
