ALL EVENTS. ALL DAY. ONE PRICE. ONLY $12!

MARCH 14 IS π (Pi) DAY AND ALBERT EINSTEIN'S BIRTHDAY!

What better way to celebrate one of the most renowned scientists’ birthday than with a little slice of pi – to the face! March 14 is π (Pi) Day and it’s also Albert Einstein’s birthday! The Children’s Museum of Houston is where the original international π (Pi) Day sensation started a decade ago and it has caught on ever since! Come celebrate the infinite, non-repeating number 3.14… as we shut down our street to battle it out in a messy, Pi(e)-induced frenzy showdown during the Children’s Museum of Houston’s 7th Annual Shaving Cream Pi(e) Fight. Get tossed right into the Pi(e) Fight celebration at 1:59 p.m. (1.59 because the numbers follow 3.14159) and get ready for a fun-filled day of all things π (Pi). Our Xtreme Spring Break offers kids and family fun with kid events, activities and live entertainment. Plus, it's all included with the price of admission!

PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR REGISTRATION DETAILS!
