Setting the World Apart in Houston

Visiting a museum in Houston is always a singular experience, as each one houses its own display of exhibits, style, knowledge and personality. Patriotic veterans and fans of antiquity will enjoy the San Jacinto Museum, Monument and Battleground, the USS Texas, Buffalo Soldier Museum, Holocaust Museum Houston and National Museum of Funeral History. A must for any kid or teenager is the Children’s Museum of Houston full of engaging showcases and anyone who adores the fine arts should plan a day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. The Houston Museum of Natural Science is a fascinating look at what makes our world “tick” and all ages will enjoy learning about Texas wildlife, energy, and the study of prehistoric life.

Houston is the largest city in Texas, so one should expect a well-rounded choice of museums, equipped with amazing one-of-a-kind displays, touring exhibits and original pieces of art. Don’t wait for your child to bring home a permission slip to visit a museum in Houston. Plan a weekend for the whole family and visit as many of these establishments as possible. Going solo? Don’t fret! Museums are a great way to spend an entire day with your inner child who has a quest for knowledge. There are perks to visiting a museum alone, including the fact that you can take your time and no one will rush you. With the variety of historical exhibits and innovative demonstrations, no one should be disappointed in what Houston has to offer!
