Science Museum in the Morning - Minute Maid Park at Night

When I go on vacation, I like to be active all day.  In the morning we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science which was a short ride away on the MetroRail.  We saw a show in the Planetarium about black holes and from there saw a film called Dream Big that described the achievement of engineers throughout the world.  It was a good film to recruit young students to the profession.

This facility seemed to be a small version of the American Museum of Natural History in NYC.  There were three floors of exhibitions covering all aspects of the natural sciences.

In the evening we went to Minute Maid park to see the Houston Astros play the Seattle Mariners.  It was a wild back and forth game that was tied 7-7 at the end of 9 innings.  The Mariners hit 4 home runs including two in the 10th inning by Kyle Seager and Danny Valencia to win it.  Jake Marisnick and Carlos Beltran both homered for the Astros in a losing effort.
