Due to the rapidly changing weather, the museum will be closed today, September 22, 2020, for the safety of all employees.

Shell Educators’ Preview

In an abundance of caution and in an effort to flat line the curve of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone our spring Shell Educators’ Preview for March 31st.

In these uncertain times, we remain committed to our mission of bringing science education to our community. We encourage you to stay connected with the Museum through our online collection, social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), and video archives.

It is an honor for us to be a part of the Houston community. Like you, we are confident that together we will rise to meet this challenge, as we have done so many times before. In the meantime, please stay safe and take care of yourselves. We look forward to having you participate in our educational programs again soon!
