Transcript Find Out In Houston's Museum District Houstonians are never at a loss for things to complain about when it comes to the Bayou City. But despite the bugs, humidity and traffic, Houston has its redeeming qualities, and among the factors that make this city worth the trouble are its world-class museums. The most notable exhibit of the past year was The Heroic Century: The Museum of Modern Art Masterpieces at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. The exhibit, which featured 209 sculptures and paintings on loan from the Museum and Modern Art in New York, was on display from Sept. 21 to Jan. 4. The pieces, which ranged from 1 885 to 1998, were arranged chronologically and represented all the major styles that constitute the modern art movement. Among the highlights of the exhibit were paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and Salvador Dali. The Museum of Natural Science went for something with a little more taste this spring. Chocolate: The Exhibit, which began Valentine's Day and ended May 9, took patrons on a journey through the social and scientific history of the sweet. The exhibit engaged the senses, with free samples of chocolate available with each visit. The Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, which displays the work of everyone from local high school students to international contemporary artists, featured Strange Messenger: The Works of Patti Smith from March 28 to June 5. The seminal pre-punk musician's drawings were on loan from the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Penn.

The museum draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to Hermann Park each year with the Burke Baker planetarium, the Wortham IMAX Theatre and the Cockrell Butterfly Center. Three stories of exhibit space house more than a dozen permanent installations on astronomy, space science, Native Americans, paleontology, energy, chemistry, minerals, seashells and Texas wildlife. There's also a lot going on behind the scenes to educate local children. More than half a million students visit the museum every year to learn about a variety of science-related topics, including space in the Challenger Learning Center. The CLC is the first in a national network that allows students to learn the teamwork needed to complete tasks in space. The center, modeled after NASA facilities, includes a simulated Mission Control linked with a space simulator through microphones, cameras and monitors. A second Challenger Learning Center — also featuring Mission Control and spacecraft simulators — is located at the museum's George Observatory in Brazos Bend State Park, 55 miles southwest of Houston. )im Parsons The Daily Cougar 166 Community Community 167
