What You'll Get
Houston Museum of Natural Science and a majority of its’ exhibits are now open. Click here for additional health and safety information as well as new guest requirements.
- “Death by Natural Causes” will introduce patrons to the range of “animal, vegetable and mineral” dangers that lurk in their everyday lives. Through a collection of specimens, text, and interactive exhibits, visitors can see what can cause a death, either directly or indirectly, from the natural world. Poisonous, venomous, and toxic are just a few of the terms that will be clarified, and things you interact with almost daily will be used as examples: mushrooms, snakes, spiders, and even common foods.

About 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 Diplodocus 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 center of a black hole.
