In the heart of Hermann Park in the Museum District, the Houston Museum of Natural Science spreads over four floors and expects to expand in the coming years. It is one of the country's most attended museums, so vast that guides recommend you organise a two-day visit. With a little bit of planning and selecting your points of interest, one day might just be enough.
The museum is divided into thematic exhibit areas offering a variety of activities. A planetarium to admire the wonders of the universe, an IMAX Screen theatre to watch different 3D movies and documentaries, areas devoted to dinosaurs, the African continent, a palaeontology gallery, and multitudes of rooms on oil and gas, minerals and precious stones. The museum also sports interest in Amerindian cultures, from the Andes to the Arctic. This cultural centre is sure to delight your kids.
