Feeling a little red, white, and blue? Join the Houston Museum of Natural Science in that patriotic spirit by coming to see an original copy of the Declaration of Independence

What is so special about this copy, you ask? And I’m so glad you did.

Donald Scheer of Atlanta, Georgia just happened to find a lovely countryside painting at a flea market in Pennsylvania. It wasn’t the painted scene he was after, though, the frame was what caught his eye. Upon attempting to separate the two the frame fell apart in his hands and out popped a yellowed document from between the two. Upon his realization to what he found he took the document to be appraised. Sotheby’s, the infamous auction house, declared this document to be one of the three finest copies of the Declaration of Independence to be preserved. 

From 10am to 6pm on Saturday, July 12th, you can view this copy of the Declaration, register to vote, enjoy the Independence Cinema, and join in crafts and activities at the Declare Yourself! exhibition!

Also, don’t miss your opportunity to join in the fun with Rockfest on Saturday, July 19th, from 11am until 2pm to view the biggest Guitar Hero 2 contest in Houston, meet rock experts, crack geodes, pan for gold, and much more!
