Free Admission to 5 Houston Museums Thursdays

Did you know Thursday is the magic day for FREE admission to several of Houston’s museums?

  • Houston Museum of Natural Science — free Thursday 3 pm – 6 pm (beginning June 14)
  • Museum of Fine Arts Houston — free Thursday 10 am – 9 pm
  • The Health Museum — free Thursday 2 pm – 5 pm
  • John C. Freeman Weather Museum — free Thursday 12 pm – 4 pm
  • Children’s Museum — free Thursday 5 pm – 8 pm

    The Houston Museum of Natural Science just changed their free day (effective THIS week) to Thursdays, as well. 3-6pm. :)

      Wow, thanks so much for sharing this info. I didn’t know of the change in “free day” at HMNS. I will add it to the list.
