HMNS Expansion: Breaking Ground Nov. 19!

HMNS Expansion - Breaking Ground Nov. 19, 2009!
We’re breaking ground on our new Duncan Family Wing on
Nov. 19, 2009 – but we still have $25 million more to raise
before we can complete the expansion.We need your help!

We’ve come a long way in 100 years– and we’re going even farther.

We’re expanding science education in Houston for the 21st century and working to build the finest science museum in the country. And we need your help!

We’ve raised over $60 million from generous individuals, foundations and corporations that are committed to our mission of science education, and know how important science and a science-literate population will be to the future of Houston.

Now, we’re breaking ground on our new wing on Nov. 19, 2009 – but we must raise $25 million more before we can complete the expansion and meet our goal of becoming the world’s best science museum, right here in Houston.

Help us build for the future of Houston by sharing your thoughts on why HMNS is important to you, your family and to Houston – or join our cause on Facebook to help us spread the word about our upcoming expansion, and donate to help us reach our goal.

  1. Hello,

    Would anyone be able to forward a question to Dr. Bakker? I would like to know what he thinks of the new theory that Torosaurus is the adult growth stage of Triceratops.

    Thanks, and congradulations on the expantion!


  2. Hi Michael! I will forward your question to Dr. Bakker. He’s in Texas this week on a dig with the museum, however – so it may be a few weeks before he has a chance to respond. Thanks for reading!
