Soak up a little history and see a side of the city you may have missed.

Happy Halloween Mansion at the Children’s Museum of Houston

When I was a kid, I wanted to Halloween to come at least twice a year, maybe more. Once a year just wasn’t enough. If haunted houses are too scary and trick or treating isn’t enough to make sure your kiddos get their Halloween fix, check our the Happy Halloween Mansion at the Children’s Museum of Houston. Surely two weeks of candy and costumes is enough.
