Houston Health Museum

The human body remains one of the most fascinating scientific subjects for curious minds of all ages. We all have a body, yet for many of us, some of the inner workings of our bodies remain a mystery. To help foster curiosity about health, medical science, and the human body in order to empower healthier living, the Houston Health Museum welcomes over 2.5 million visitors a year to explore a wide range of exhibits about the human body and medical science.

To make this fascinating museum even more enticing, there are plenty of Houston Health Museum discounts and coupons available to help you save on your visit. Tickets are regularly $10 each, but there are some ways to get them cheaper or even free!

2. Go Free on Thursday

Like many other museums across the city, the Houston Health Museum is always free on Thursdays from 2:00 to 7:00 pm.
