Proposals and Engagements

Two dinosaur figures hold an engagement ring and wedding ring from a proposal at the museum.

Say YES to HMNS! If you’re trying to pop the question for the science lover in your life, there’s no better place than the Houston Museum of Natural Science. A romantic proposal surrounded by the glittering gems and minerals under our amorous moon or even written in the stars of our Planetarium, with a proposal this perfect, they’re sure to say “Yes!”

The museum is filled with gorgeous venues for your proposal idea, and our special events team is happy to help you locate the perfect spot! Some popular engagement ideas include:

Moon by Luke Jerram

Cockrell Butterfly Center

Cullen Hall of Gems and Minerals

Burke Baker Planetarium, where we can personalize the screen for a creative proposal!

The image shows a creative proposal at the museum; a newly engaged couple stands in the planetarium under a screen that reads "Katherine, will you marry me?" written in stars.

Your love is written in the stars, so your engagement shouldn’t be any different. Will you #SayYestoHMNS? Our special events team can help you have a proposal that’s out of this world. Contact our proposals team at or 713-639-4749
