Visit The Houston Museum of Natural Science

Nestled in Hermann Park is a museum that dates back to 1909.

We're talking about the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and it's the most popular museum in Texas.

Its mission is to preserve and advance the general knowledge of natural science, and highlights include:

Cockrell Butterfly Center

The Cockrell Butterfly Center is a three-story glass structure that features a fifty-foot waterfall and hundreds of exotic butterflies and insects. It's one of the museum's most popular attractions, and the upper level is where visitors can see some of the largest cockroaches in Houston, meet a cricket weatherman, and learn how insects are used to solve crimes just to name a few.

Burke Baker Planetarium

Since 1964, the Burke Baker Planetarium has welcomed millions of visitors, and it's one of the top six planetariums in the country. It features a state-of-the-art digital sound and light system, and believe it or not, the dome theater is where NASA Space Shuttle astronauts learn to identify starfields. Films include Edge of Darkness, Starry Night Express, and Dark Side of the Moon.

Wortham Giant Screen Theatre

The Wortham Giant Screen Theatre is the city's first IMAX experience, and it offers the latest in motion picture projection. Its seats 394 and more than fourteen million people have enjoyed a show here since the theatre opened in 1989. Movies include Sea Monsters 3D, Incredible Predators 3D, and Amazon Adventure 3D.
