Lights, Snow & Ugly Sweaters

Between now and January 6th, you can count on a 100% chance of snow here in Houston. No, it’s not due to classic holiday magic or an extreme weather anomaly: this snow is brought to us by the Children’s Museum of Houston’s special Snow Days event happening in December.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, the Children’s Museum of Houston is unwrapping all of their best goodies to create a true winter wonderland inside the museum. The Children’s Museum has announced the all-new Lights, Snow & Ugly Sweaters holiday experience which is happening now through January 6. Bring your loved ones, put on your ugliest holiday sweater, and start the season right with some true holiday magic.

Lights, Snow & Ugly Sweaters introduces a whole selection of winter-themed activities and interactive exhibits. The museum has been filled with a huge display of holiday lights to warm up even the Grinchiest of hearts, while on December 15 and 16 visitors will be able to become their own light show with LED-equipped holiday vests. There is a snowball launcher for visitors to fling “snow” balls, and from December 22  to January 6 the museum will host the ultimate plush snow fight. Best of all, from December 22 to December 24, the museum will experience a 100% chance of snow during real Snow Days.

To celebrate the holiday meme of wearing ironically ugly holiday sweaters, the museum will give $3 off admission to all guests wearing their ugliest sweater. The uglier the better!

Other special events include:

  • Dec. 8: Grinchy Who-Bilation: Join us for a “Who-pla” of Grinch-themed activities!
  • Dec. 22: Frozen Over: Join Elsa, Anna and other Frozen characters for a sing-along, ornament-making, and a Frozen marathon!
  • Dec. 24: Cookies with Santa: Fuel up with milk and cookies and meet the man in red as he prepares to embark on his epic journey!
  • Dec. 31: New Year’s Noon Bash: Ring in the new year at the stroke of noon with a parade, ball drop, and New Year’s dance party!
