CMH reopens with "Fun Summer Vibes" sponsored by Garcia Hamilton & Associates, L.P.

May 25, 2021

Are you ready? We are too! Children’s Museum Houston is counting down the days until the school year is over and your mind can come out to play! The Museum will reopen on Tuesday, June 8 to the public, with “Fun Summer Vibes” - a “tropi-cool” paradise destination for families to chill out and switch to vacay mode. You’ve been waiting a whole year for this. Now is the time to celebrate summer! Timed entry tickets are now available for purchase.

The Museum will be open from Tuesday through Saturdays, from 10 am to 6 pm and Thursdays, from 10 am to 8 pm (Free Family Night Thursday from 5 to 8 pm).  Don’t forget to book you visit in advance as the Museum will be operating at a limited capacity.
