Make No Bones About It: The Morian Hall of Paleontology is an Exhibit Not to Miss

With special exhibits rotating in and out of the Houston Museum of Natural Science throughout the year, it's easy to overlook the permanent exhibits. The Morian Hall of Paleontology is one constant you don't want to miss. This is no ordinary collection of dinosaur bones on display; it's an in-depth encounter with creatures of the past that is sure to enthrall even the youngest visitors. 

Why Kids Love Houston's Cockrell Butterfly Center

The Houston Museum of Natural Science is known for having a variety of both permanent and traveling exhibits to visit throughout the year. One such museum constant is the Cockrell Butterfly Center, which is an indoor exhibit that consists of the Brown Hall of Entomology and the Rainforest Conservatory. Brown Hall houses a wealth of interactive information about various insects, and conservatory is a living habitat that houses hundreds of different butterflies. 

Flying High at the Hermann Park Kite Festival

Since 2014, the Hermann Park Kite Festival has been bringing Houstonians of all ages - and their kites - together to enjoy a day of kite flying, live entertainment, and tons of free activities for families and children. Organized by the Hermann Park Conservancy, the festival takes place on Miller Hill and over the Jones Reflection Pool.

I knew I wanted to take my family to the Hermann Park Kite Festival because not only does my toddler love watching and flying kites, but any family oriented event that is filled with fun activities and is free always sounds like a good idea. We attended the 2016 festival on April 3, which was perfect timing in terms of weather - the annual heat wave had yet to set in. Next year's festival is set for March 26, 2017.
