Observe a Feeding Frenzy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science
July 10, 2017 | cimgroup
Every Friday this summer at the Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS), guests are invited to witness a Feeding Frenzy on the half-hour from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The staff at the Cockrell Butterfly Center allow visitors to watch while they feed some of the exhibit's critters, including praying mantises, centipedes, and even snakes. During the process, they'll explain how food fuels each of these animals and allow spectators to ask questions.
This is just one of the regular events that draws folks to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. The museum offers endless opportunities for engaging learning experiences, from the Butterfly Center to the Planetarium to the Giant Screen Theatre. These are in addition to the 16 permanent exhibits, which cover everything from precious gems to Amazonian art. Plan a visit to the HMNS to experience everything that it has to offer.
