Holocaust Museum Houston
Age recommendation: Free
Admission at Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) will be free every second Saturday this summer August 14. Visitors are invited to experience the Museum’s special juried exhibition, Withstand: Latinx Art in Times of Conflict, at no cost thanks to the generosity of United Airlines and H-E-B. Guests can also enjoy special dance and theatre performances, storytimes in English and Spanish, curator-led tours and more.
On view through October 17, 2021, Withstand: Latinx Art in Times of Conflict explores themes of social justice and human rights through 100 artworks of Houston Latinx artists. The art featured in the exhibition includes several themes of focus including border relations, gender roles, domestic violence, the immigrant experience and social and political turmoil. In addition to Withstand, admission includes entry to the Museum’s permanent Holocaust, Human Rights, Diaries and Samuel Bak galleries.
Summer Free Days presented by United Airlines are open to the public, but ticket reservations are required. Reserve complimentary tickets at hmh.org/tickets.
If visitors are fully vaccinated, face masks are not required. Visitors in need of a face mask will be provided one. For the safety of our patrons, HMH will provide a finger glove to ensure participation but no direct touch of interactive exhibit elements.
