Support the Museum's mission to bring engaging, hands-on learning to Houston's children as we welcome keynote speaker Jessica Lahey, author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. Luncheon proceeds will help support the Museum’s early childhood and parenting programs which focus on building parenting skills, providing information on child development and engaging families in the joy of learning together.
