Please join us for the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Annual Gala on Saturday, March 6, 2021 and travel around the Earth within the walls of the Museum. Our “Tour the World” Gala is a light-hearted, black-tie affair with dinner, dancing, and a beautiful silent auction of rare gems, minerals, fossils, and other treasures. Funds raised from the Gala will benefit the Museum’s general operating budget, which sustains our many programs and fosters a love of science and discovery for two million visitors, school groups, summer campers and scouts annually.

For more information or questions on becoming an underwriter, buying a table, or purchasing tickets, please contact Ashley Patterson, Director of Fundraising Events & Programming, at or 713-639-4734.
