Trace the paths of infectious diseases through society and see how we can prevent a future pandemic in the new experiential exhibit Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World at The Health Museum.

Created by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World examines the origins of pathogens, how they spread, and the ways to address them in a world where humans, animals, and the environment have deep, intricate connections.

Along the way, visitors will also get a glimpse at how the Greater Houston region dealt with three major outbreaks; the plague, polio, and HIV.

This exhibit is open from Saturday, October 5, 2019, through Sunday, May 31, 2020.


$10, $8 for ages 3 to 12 and ages 65 and up; free for ages 2 and under. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
