Free Art For Kids at Houston Museum of Fine Art…Families Stay Cool and Cultured This Summer

The Houston Museum of Fine Arts or has free admission on Thursdays. Stay cool this summer!

Last summer my kids and I not only got a chance to tour the MFAH for free but we also participated in Creation Station where they made clay animals.

Park behind one of the other museums in the district, save money and walk across the street.

The museum is located at

1001 Bissonnet Street
Houston, TX 77005

The admission does not include the Pompeii exhibit ticket which costs $8 to $10 for a ticket.

Creation Station is a drop-in art-making activity from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Thursdays and Sundays where families can drop-in and create art inspired by the museum exhibits. Kids can create sculptures, paintings, prints and photography in the studio located inside the museum.

This Thursday, June 19th the kids will be making scrolls and learning Chinese brush-strokes in the Beck building. Click here for a schedule of Creation Station activities.

Kids can also obtain free admission to the museum with a Houston Public Library Card.
