The primary venue for blockbuster exhibitions in the Museum District, expect hour-long waits for tickets to popular shows. Check out the floating marble sphere, huge sundial, and implanted model of the solar system right outside the door, in addition to the dinosaur skeleton display and Foucalt’s pendulum inside. Don’t miss the stunning Hall of Minerals and gems. Visit the butterfly museum, IMAX theater, and Burke Planetarium to keep a body cool during Houston’s uglier days. Free admission with student ID; student discounts available.
