We’re all going to die someday. It’s an unfortunate and very unavoidable fact of the animal kingdom. That doesn’t mean death has to be something we fear, though. To help demystify the natural process of death, the Houston Museum of Natural Science is bringing back its popular Death by Natural Causes exhibit which introduces museum-goers to the wide range of “animal, vegetable, and mineral” dangers that surround us in our everyday lives. If you missed the exhibit last time it came through, now’s your chance to go at a discounted price.
The Houston Museum of Natural Science Death by Natural Causes exhibit features a variety of animal specimens and interactive exhibits which provide a comprehensive look at various causes of death in the natural world including poisons, attacks, diseases, and other ways to die. Various urban legends and “old wives tales” will be explored and debunked through explaining the scientific realities behind these myths.
Aside from Death by Natural Causes, the museum is currently hosting other special exhibits like Life in Stone, a special gem carving exhibit, and The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, a unique look at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original manuscripts and historical artifacts, and investigative tools like those which would have been used by Sherlock Holmes.
