The Houston Museum of Natural Science
The Houston Museum of Natural Sciences is found in Huston, Texas, on the northern border of Herman Park. It is among the most popular natural history museums in the United States and worldwide. It was established in Houston in 1909 by an organization recognized as the Houston Museum and Scientific Society. The society’s primary purpose for establishing the Museum was to provide and support a free institution for individuals focusing on science and education. The magnificent science museum has an impressive stack of minerals and gems specimens, a planetarium, space station models, IMAX theater, a butterfly center, a dinosaur skeleton, and exceeding a dozen of other permanent exhibits that look into the Native Americans, Texas wildlife, paleontology, science, seashells, energy, astronomy and more. The Museum has two satellite facilities, and the first one is in Fort Bent County, known as The George Observatory. This observatory has the largest telescopes in the country and is open for public viewing and stargazing. The other satellite is the Houston Museum of Natural Science, located in Sugar Land.
