Spring into action at Children’s Museum Houston’s reblossoming EcoStation exhibit

Spring is in bloom!  After last year’s winter storm, flowers are once again blossoming at Children’s Museum Houston’s beloved EcoStation exhibit.  Thanks to the support of CenterPoint Energy, the plants and animals around our pond are thriving and dozens of Texas-native trees and flowers are now growing in the exhibit which was devastated by the freezing conditions of the storm.  

To celebrate the revitalization of EcoStation, dozens of butterflies will be released by children during a “Spring into Action” ceremony.


Recognized as a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation, EcoStation explores the environment and ecosystems. The exhibit now bustles with wildlife, including chicks, hissing cockroaches, rat snake, crayfish, turtles and more.

Get Eco-Active! EcoStation is designed to help families develop an understanding of the environment and teach how circumstances and decisions may impact our ecosystems.  Everything in the ecosystem is connected… even you!
