If you are located in the Houston area or making a visit and haven’t yet visited the Houston Museum of Natural Science, you are missing out. The kids will absolutely get a kick out of this place and they just recently added a new dinosaur exhibit that is phenomenal. However, before you just venture to the museum there are some things that you need to know ahead of time to make your trip more meaningful and overall enjoyable.
The Parking at The Museum
Parking can be a bit tricky at the Museum as you might guess would be the case with any place that draws large crowds. There is a somewhat small parking garage where each level is uniquely marked with a dinosaur. However, do not be deterred just yet because if the garage is full there are a number of spaces available outside the garage. Of course, this will require a longer walk, but since when has walking been a bad thing?
The Museum Ticket Booth
Once you actually get inside the museum, you will find that the ticket booth is simple and straightforward. However, the only problem is that there are literally three million different options where you can spend your money. Keep in mind that if you want to avoid the admission, you should take advantage of the free Thursdays where admission for all permanent exhibits is free between the times of 3 pm to 6 pm. It will be extremely crowded, but it is free.
Wiess Energy Hall
There are going to be hundreds to thousands of booths and exhibits to check out, but the Wiess Energy Hall is one exhibit that you simply don’t want to miss. It combines interaction with high-tech technology to teach you everything that you need to know about energy. The oil and gas section of the display will be especially interesting and invigorating.
