Journey through time and learn how The History of Cremation unfolded at a new permanent exhibit now on display at the National Museum of Funeral History in North Houston.

Part of a joint project with the Cremation Association of North America (CANA), it examines the full-circle story of cremation, starting from its beginnings in 1876 Pennsylvania to a step-by-step demonstration of the modern cremation process.

Along the way, visitors will have a chance to view artifacts, historical booklets from crematories, and antique urns while discovering the seemingly endless possibilities for memorialization — including the creation of a diamond from cremated remains.

Admission

$10 for ages 12+; $9 for ages 65+ and veterans; $7 for ages 6 to 11; free for ages 5 and under. Click here for more information.
