There’s a reason the Houston Museum of Natural Science is one of the most attended museums in the United States. The Museum houses four floors of exhibit halls including the Morian Paleontology Hall, Cullen Hall of Gems and Minerals, Hall of Ancient Egypt, Hall of the Americas, and more. This is a museum you can't miss if you're visiting Houston.
Head to Hermann Park, where the museum assembles a captivating collage of scientific and historical artifacts, including dinosaurs, rare gems, spectacular shells, and an African ecosystem. If Ancient Egypt fascinates you, make sure to head over to the 10,000-square-foot Hall of Ancient Egypt. There you'll witness hundreds of artifacts that offer a glimpse of what life was like in ancient Egypt. You'll also get to meet the resident mummy, Ankh Hap.
There is so much to see at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. It's worth taking a visual journey in the Wortham IMAX Theatre, or observing over 1,500 butterflies in the Cockrell Butterfly Center. See the spectacular Rainforest Conservatory — a three-story glass structure built around a 50-foot indoor waterfall.
