Houston Has the Happiest of All Holiday Museum Exhibits

If you’re looking for something to do with the kiddos that’s a little more exciting that the checking out the Santa Claus imposter helper at the local mall—we’ve got an idea. An exhibit, "Merry Grinchmas! The Art of Dr. Seuss," is now doing its thing at the Children’s Museum of Houston. It’s one way to get into the holiday spirit, and we’re thinking it might just get a smile out of both the little kids and the big kids.

Things run through January 23, as visitors are welcome to check out the life, times, and artwork of Theodor Geisel—aka Dr. Seuss. Original artifacts, drawings, paintings, and a few reproductions will all be on display to show off over 70 years of creativity and color. The museum promises to show off some rare images from times between the 1920s and 1990s, and they’re saying its stuff most have never even seen before.

The exhibit also reveals a little of a behind the scenes look at the life and times of Dr. Seuss, as some of the goodies include things that offer a peek into his life as a cartoonist, author, poet, sculptor, and artist.

Starting today the museum goes all in with the celebration, as now through December 24, they are bringing Merry Grinchmas Week to the museum. They’ve got artificial snow, Merry Grinchmas pop-up cards, a chance to make some create snowflake ornaments, and of course a reading of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

If you’re interested in checking things out it’s $9 for both the kids and adults, and that will get you access to all the Dr. Seuss stuff as well as the museum usual offerings and hands-on fun. The place is open between 10am and 6pm daily except for Sunday when they open up at noon. Thursday nights offer extended hours between 5pm and 8pm, and best of all it’s free family night.
