Children’s Museum Houston


Saturday, May. 23, 2015 – Monday, Sep. 7, 2015


Kids can gear up, train up and put their powers to the test! Superheroes will rise during the Summer of Epic Adventure: Forces Unite. Dr. Boredom has stolen all superheroes and villains’ powers, and it’s up to the kids to help forces unite, beat Boredom and all that stands against summer fun!

Kids shouldn't miss action-packed activities, epic showdown performances, character appearances and extraordinary events!

Daily epic adventures include:

  • Get Your Gear On – Superheroes can’t rely on their superpowers alone – they’ve got to look the part! Make your own costume, emblem, gadgets, vehicles and more.
  • Epic Experiences – It takes both physical and mental training to be super! We will put you through both all summer long.
  • Live Musical Production – Don’t miss “Forces Unite,” an action packed adventure complete with a chase scene and a new musical number!
