Contemporary Arts Museum and Health Museum of Houston

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

This is a cozy museum centrally located in Houston’s Museum District. There are 2 floors of exhibit space with 1 floor usually dedicated to each exhibit it has on display. The exhibits change about every 2 months. I don’t really get the contemporary arts, maybe some if it is too abstract for me, so this was not a particularly interesting museum for me. Perhaps also because when I went they were in the process of setting up a new exhibit and an entire floor was closed. However, it has a pretty neat gift shop with a lot of creative and one-of-a-kind items. Admittedly, I found the gift shop to be more interesting than the museum.

The Health Museum

The Health Museum is located across the street from the Houston Garden Center in the Houston Museum District. It presents basic information about health and the human body in interactive exhibits and larger than life dioramas. Kids would enjoy the exhibits in this museum. I liked the challenge exhibits where you test your strength, reflexes, and muscle memory. I would’ve liked to try the activities in You: the exhibit that explore age, gender, and ethnicity but they were broken. It looked like an interesting exhibit.


休士頓健康博物館在休士頓花園中心對面。博物館提供基本人體健康的資料。有互動展覽品和大大人體器官模型。小孩子會喜歡這博物館的展覽。在一個展覽裏,有幾個項目測試你的力氣,反應速度,和肌肉記憶能力。我覺得很有趣。我本來也想試 You: the exhibit 探索關於年齡,性別,和種族的展覽。可惜我參觀的時候展覽的機器都被弄壞了。
