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.
What: HMNS Sugar Land Third Birthday Party Where: HMNS at Sugar Land, 13016 University Blvd., Sugar Land, TX 77479 When: Thursday, Nov. 8, 6 to 9 p.m. Cost: $50; advance purchase required
Today is the Twelfth Day of HMNS! In the spirit of the classic holiday carol, we’re taking 12 days to feature 12 different videos that preview or go behind-the-scenes of a holiday museum activity, here on the blog (or, you can get a sneak peek at all the videos on 12days.hmns.org – we won’t tell).
2009 was the Museum’s centennial – our 100th year of science education in Houston. We’re very proud of our history – and excited about the amazing changes that are coming to the Museum as we expand our facility over the next few years.
Throughout the year, we produced a video series of interviews with our staff who have been here the longest – the record is 39 years! This video is a collection of our favorite moments with them, as well as their ideas for where the Museum is headed for our next century of science. Enjoy!
Get into the holiday spirit! Visit our 12 Days of HMNS web site to see the videos and get more information about each event, exhibit and film: 12days.hmns.org
Today is our last day of videos, and we hope you’ve enjoyed the series. It’s also Christmas day – and if you’re looking for something to do – we’ve got you covered. Both HMNS and HMNS at Sugar Land are open today – we hope to see you!
