In the Discovery Works exhibition, science is easy, exciting and lots of fun for everyone. Every action has a fun reaction as kids investigate science in motion.

With machines like levers, pulleys and gears, kids can lift more and turn faster. Each exhibit is made for touching, pushing, turning, twisting, spinning or shaking. They can use their muscles to make electricity, discover how light waves work, use giant dishes to send a whisper across the room and much more.

Please help us to preserve our collections for the next generation by not using flash when taking personal pictures at HMNS and at HMNS Sugar Land. Exposure to strong lights over time causes fading and deterioration of most artifacts and specimens.

Flash photography is ONLY allowed in the Grand Hall and the rainforest of the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

Selfie sticks are not allowed anywhere in HMNS, HMNS Sugar Land and the George Observatory.

For press and any commercial photo shoots, please contact the Public Relations dept.
