October is going to be a seriously exciting time at HMNS Sugar Land so I want to personally invite you to come and join in the festivities with us!

OCTOBER 2ND  11am – 5pm

This time last year people from every department were working around the clock to get HMNS at Sugar Land ready for it’s October 3rd Grand Opening – and open we did!  We are now 1 year old!  In the past year we have had changing exhibits like Narnia the Exhibition, Bob Pack’s Birds, and now Robots the Interactive Exhibition.

We have also seen the creation of our weekly story time program, docent led tours, and Second Saturday family day program.   So this Saturday October 2nd come join us for our first birthday party in conjunction with the Telfair Music Festival from 11-5.  Hear good music, purchase yummy international foods, and party with us as we kick off another great year.

OCTOBER 9TH  10am – 2 pm
For this month’s Second Saturday event at HMNS-SL we will be learning all about Pirates to celebrate the opening of our newest traveling exhibition downtown Real Pirates.  There will be face painting, story time, coloring stations, and arts and crafts!  You can even go on a museum wide scavenger hunt to search for treasure!  And we hgope that you will totally get into the fun and come dressed up as a pirate yourself!  (Free with museum admission.)

Bryanna has been with the museum for a few years now in the Collections department (and no, that’s not a part of the accounting department that hounds you for money!) helping take care of the museum’s artifacts, and installing special exhibitions. She never expected to work in a museum until she found a Master’s program in Museum Studies and changed career paths, and only at HMNS does she get to see and experience such a wide range of specimens and exhibits! When not at one of the museum’s many buildings she can usually be found quilting, reading a book, or buying shoes.
