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.

Impressive amount and selection of exhibits for Dinosaurs and Acient Egypt. The museum is very well prepared and educational. Kids loved the place!

The staff were very helpful with questions and ticket purchase. The museum was great. We took our four year old, and he enjoyed it Immensely. The dinosaur exhibit was my favorite. When I first walked into the room, I was amazed by all of the excellent displays of bones. He liked the mummies. Overall, we had a great experience. It is good for people of all ages!

We had a great time! We arrived early, around 9:30am and there were no crowds. We checked out the dinosaurs first, since we figured the Dinos would get crowded fast. The staff in the paleontology hall were great and so informative! One staff even got our four year old twins to listen, which is saying something! All the exhibits we visited were great and our kiddos loved it. We can't wait to go again and see more! This is a great, family friendly, and enriching experience.
