Learn about all types of weather phenomena at HMNS Sugar Land’s next Friday Family Fun Night, this April 5!
Join the intergalactic fact gatherers of Zula Patrol and explore concepts like clouds, precipitation, wind and temperature.
Each patron will receive a playing card and a passport at check-in, inviting them to visit the different areas of “Weather Land” and receive passport credits as they explore different topics.
Once you’ve visited Tornado Alley, Thunder Quarry, Hurricane Cave, Sunny Meadows, The Rain Forest and Blizzard Mountain, you can exchange your full passport for a prize!
Each weather station will have related crafts and activities, and patrons will also enjoy snacks and a special screening of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Do the names Bula, Multo, Zeeter, Wizzy or Wigg mean anything to you? They will after a visit to HMNS Sugar Land’s latest exhibit, Zula Patrol: Mission Weather, which teaches kids aged from pre-kindergarten to the third grade and beyond all about Earth’s weather systems with hands-on, interactive activities.
Starting this Friday, this band of intergalactic fact-gatherers (as they’re called) will teach visitors about weather phenomena like clouds, precipitation, wind and temperature.
Based on the popular educational television program of the same name, the Zula Patrol museum exhibition aims to promote an understanding of and an interest in science and astronomy with character-driven storytelling.
Zula Patrol: Mission Weather is on exhibit at HMNS Sugar Land until May 27. For tickets, click here.
HMNS at Sugar Land has quite the pretty new Paleo Hall.
With 5,000 square feet of major mounts (including a Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus rex and Giant Ground Sloth), an impressive selection of trilobites, detailed to-scale models and an animated prehistoric aquarium, it’s got more than enough to interest a developing dino-lover or a seasoned fossil expert.
The trilobite section is one of the best in the area.
Check out this fossilized in-ground Stegosaurus!
The Sugar Land Triceratops skeleton features a full tail.
A fossilized prehistoric giant armadillo is just one of the specimens that once existed in the Texas area. To schedule your next visit to HMNS Sugar Land, click here.
There is something fishy going on at the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land.
HMNS Sugar Land is celebrating a very special third birthday this Thursday, and with it, they’re unveiling a very watery gift for guests: a brand new, 2,000 gallon aquarium!
Who wants to Go Fish! in Sugar Land?
Patrons will get a peek at the just-expanded paleontology hall and release their inner kiddo with an adults-only party that’s fit for a 3-year old. Dig into a buffet full of childhood comfort food and bid on live auction items — like the chance to release the aquarium’s very first fish!
All proceeds benefit HMNS Sugar Land and its programming. Call Kristina Thompson at 281-313-2277, ext. 123 for ticket information.
