Children’s Museum of Houston


Friday, Dec. 21, 2018 – Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019


Brrr!  It’s not real snow, but it’s a real throw down!  What would holidays be without the competitive spirit?  Get rid of the “snow” pile up and plow your way to make an instant snowstorm!  Get your neighbors to initiate a blizzard by tossing “snowballs” to the opposing team’s zone as fast as possible and clearing your side of any icy conditions.  Chill out.  It’s only Houston snow!

Event time: All day in Building Zone.

Please note: Museum is closed on Christmas and New Year's Day.
