Expand your mind and your belly at Pi Day this Thursday!

Some people celebrate birthdays with cake. We tend to do things a little differently.

So when it comes to commemorating the birth of one Albert Einstein, we’re doing it with some flavor: celebrate Pi Day this Thursday, March 14 (3.14 — get it?) at either HMNS in Hermann Park or HMNS in Sugar Land. We’ll have crafts, activities, and Einstein-adoring Museum Store swag.

Celebrate Pi Day at both HMNS locations this 3.14!

We’ll even have pie (with an “e”!) on-hand from Pi Pizza and Oh My Pocket Pies at HMNS’ Hermann Park location. Come see us from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and feed your brain and your belly — it’s a genius idea.

Have a fun, fossil-filled Spring Break at HMNS! Did we mention we have air conditioning?

Looking for something to do with your little paleontologist over spring break? Well, we have some dino-mite options for you!

First, check out this Photo Scavenger Hunt of the Morian Hall of Paleontology. All of the images on the hunt are of specimens or images you can easily see in the hall. The trick?  We have zoomed in on the objects so closely that you might not be able to tell where to look! This is perfect for those paleontologists that haven’t quite learned to read yet.

Next, try taking a tour of the Paleo Hall with some of our knowledgeable staff! Our tours are family-friendly and available in a variety of ways. Talk to the Box Office to find out how you can participate!

Then, check out the bucking new Broncosaurus ride in the grand hall! Built especially for the little ones, this ride takes you back to the Cretaceous and lets you see what it would be like to saddle up a T. rex and go for a ride.

Check out our new buckin' Broncosaurus ride!

Finally, take a trip back in time to the age of saber-toothed cats, giant sloths and woolly mammoths in the Giant Screen Theatre when you watch Titans of the Ice Age.  You’ll explore the mammoth steppe with baby Lyuba, a 40,000-year-old female woolly mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost. You’ll discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever uncovered.

All in all, we have a fun, fossil-filled week awaiting you! See you soon!
