FREE TUESDAYS “Death by Natural Causes” at the Houston Museum of Natural Science

July 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


FREE TUESDAYS AT HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE: Every Tuesday, general admission is FREE at the Houston Museum of Natural Science on a first-come, first-serve basis from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Check out the latest special exhibition “Death by Natural Causes” on view indefinitely (may be subject to special exhibition fees) for an opportunity to discover what drove Van Gogh mad, why tomatoes were deemed inedible 500 years ago, and many things that are far more likely to kill you than sharks.

Meet the malefactors who do the Grim Reaper’s deadly work while disguised in delightful colors, sweet scents, unassuming identities, and more. Death by Natural Causes will introduce you to the range of “animal, vegetable and mineral” dangers that lurk in their

everyday lives. Through a collection of specimens, text and interactives, visitors can see what can cause a death, either directly or indirectly, from the natural world. Poisonous, venomous and toxic are just a few of the terms that will be clarified, and things you interact with almost daily will be used as examples — mushrooms, snakes, spiders, and even common foods!

Old wives tales and urban myths will be debunked, as visitors travel through five general areas of rich graphics, compelling visuals and surprising specimens.

Step inside and explore your fears, be they animal, vegetable or mineral, but tread lightly… You never know what treacherous creatures crawl just below your feet.
