About the Event

It's time to say "GOODBYE, 2021!" and hello to a new year! No need to stay up till midnight to celebrate the New Year. Children's Museum Houston welcomes you back to the city's longest-running New Year's Eve celebration just for kids. This end-of-year bash rings in the New Year at the stroke of 11 am, noon, and 1 pm with ball drops, just like Times Square! Catch live performances, and dance 'til the countdowns!

The Museum closes at 3 pm on New Year's Eve.
