Houston Museum Of Natural Science
5555 Herman Park Drive
Houston, TX 77030 United States


In partnership with the Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS), HAS will participate in International Archeology Day.   In this all-day event, HAS will present a large display of hands-on archeological exhibits in the Grand Entry Hall of the museum to ignite excitement about archeology for participants of all ages.   Our exhibit will feature presentations on archeological excavations in the Houston area in which HAS members have participated, including Frost Town, San Jacinto and San Felipe de Austin.  Our exhibit will include family-friendly interactive hands-on displays of both prehistoric and historic artifacts, as well as photo boards and posters showing how we participated in these digs.  We will distribute printed materials developed by our education committee that participants can take with them and share with their teachers, organizations, etc. to further promote archeology in the Houston area and in Texas. Initiated by the American Institute of Archeology in 2011, International Archeology Day celebrates archeology and the thrill of discovery.
