Where Science and History Meet Fun!

The Houston Museum of Natural Science is a place where kids can learn and have fun all at the same time! Founded in 1909 this is one of the most visited museums in the United States and home to a variety of projects, programs, and exhibitions. Explore ancient Egyptian artifacts and discover the world of the old pyramids. Visit tropical rainforests and explore the galaxies of the world all inside this amazing museum.

The museum can be quite crowded on weekends, especially during the holiday season. Every year, nearly half a million students attend field trips at the museum, which typically take place on weekday mornings. You can call 713-639-4629 to inquire about expected crowds during your intended visit.

You don’t want to miss out on the Cockrell Butterfly Center which is one of the main attractions! This beautiful three-story glass building is filled with tropical plants and butterflies. No one will have a bad time checking out the museum.

When it’s time to satisfy your hunger, we recommend stopping at a nearby local eatery that everyone raves about. Lucille's is a comfort food haven with all sorts of southern specialties and big portions. You will leave very full and happy.
