In 2006, the Museum welcomed more than 3 million visitors, including 500,000 school children – despite the limits imposed by facilities originally built to accommodate 200,000.

To meet this ever-increasing demand, the Museum is in the process of an $85 million capital campaign that will fund a new wing and renovations to the current facility.

The Expansion Plan Includes:

Creating the most dramatic and comprehensive Paleontology Hall in the world.
Expanding educational facilities, with the addition of space for 40 new classrooms, to accommodate school field trips.
Renovating permanent exhibition halls and doubling the number of temporary exhibition halls.
Expanding¬†our storage space for the Museum’s collections.
Enhancing visitor services with a new consolidated gift shop and additional meeting space.

We need your help to make these plans a reality for Houston’s future. Get involved – and help us build for the next century of science education in Houston!
