Seismique: An Out Of This World Houston Museum

by Sarah Bradley on February 17, 2021 in Entertainment, Art, Houston,

Located in the Village of West Oaks, a colorful new art museum is connecting the Greater Houston area to a more modern activity for all ages.

In visiting Seismique, I was truly impressed and inspired by the abundance of colorful arrays of light, numerous interactive displays and the opportunity to have good ol’ fashioned fun!

From a rain room, to a net jungle gym for all ages, to manually operated technology. All whilst built like an intergalactic maze! You’re sure to find yourself feeling and playing like a child again. The approximate 40 unique galleries spanning 40,000 square feet are truly out of this world.

Seismique is the perfect venue to exhibit the works and support established and emerging local artists. Having 65 Houstonian artists and craftsmen involved in creating this exhibit, you’re sure to find a room that speaks to you.

Tour this stellar museum any day of the week except Tuesdays as a guest, or book one of the multiple private event spaces for meetings, events, and live performances of all kinds.

Other than general tours and private events, Seismique also offers educational workshops and technology-driven learning opportunities for local students and school organizations across the Greater Houston area.
