Nestled in the heart of Houston, The Health Museum is one of the most interactive science learning centers of its type.

Buffalo Soldier Museum (free between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.)
Founded in 2001 by Vietnam veteran Captain Paul Matthews, the Buffalo Soldier Museum is the only museum dedicated to preserving the honor and legacy of the African-American soldiers who served our country from the Vietnam War to present. The museum's website states that historians believe the nickname Buffalo Soldiers began with the Cheyenne Warriors in 1867. It was given both out of respect and for the fierce fighting ability of the 10th Calvary. Eventually, Buffalo Soldiers became a term for all African-American soldiers. Current exhibits include "The Forgotten Faces of Ft. Craig" and "Artillery."
Holocaust Museum Houston (free between 2:00 p.m. 5:00 p.m.)
At the fourth largest Holocaust museum in the United States, visitors remember the innocent victims and learn the survivors' amazing stories through events and powerful exhibits.
