Due to conflicting activities, there will be no Free Thursday times on June 8th.


The Houston Museum of Natural Science thanks you for purchasing a journey like none other through James Hood’s Mesmerica, but keep in mind… the experience doesn’t have to end here.

Use code Mesmerica15 and extend the experience with a 15% discount on your choice of HMNS membership. Browse our membership options and join now.

Mesmerica allows audiences to leave their frustrations at the door and refocus on music and art, relaxing the mind and opening the door to endless possibilities. The museum welcomes you back, day after day to revisit that same feeling.

Take a serene stroll with beautiful butterflies in the rainforest. Stop and stare at the bones of old, standing the test of time in the Land of Giants. Rare gems, colorful shells, artifacts with century-old stories embedded into their making… You can find it all at HMNS.

An HMNS membership offers numerous perks and pays for itself (sometimes in one visit). Along with free entry to the permanent exhibit halls all year long, guests receive discounted rates to the Cockrell Butterfly Center, Giant Screen Theatre, Burke Baker Planetarium and special traveling exhibits like Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs. It doesn’t stop there. A membership will also gain guests access tour satellite locations HMNS at Sugar Land and The George Observatory.

HMNS continuously encourages hundreds of thousands of guests to step outside of their day-to-day lives and find comfort amongst our calming curations.
