The Health Museum
Reported By Admin On 18th Mar 2011

The Health Museum The John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science, also known as The Health Museum, is Houston's most interactive science learning center and a member institution of the world-renowned Texas Medical Center. Located in the heart of the city's rich and varied Museum District, The Health Museum encourages growing interest and regard for healthier lifestyles, fitness and good physical, mental and spiritual health. The Museum treasures Houston’s diverse population and welcomes individuals of all backgrounds.The Health Museum is committed to excellence in innovative and interactive health and science educational experiences such as:  a hands-on walk through the human body  new and exciting exhibits  real organ dissections  obesity prevention and nutritional awareness  science mini-classes and mini-med schools  health fairs and community outreach  family science labs  school field trip experiences  home school classes and programs  scout programs  summer camps In addition to our permanent exhibits, the Amazing Body Pavilion and You: The Exhibit, other attractions include the McGovern 4D Theater, the Sue Trammell Whitfield Gallery, for seasonal exhibits, and learning centers. The Museum offers affordable membership rates for individuals and families. Visitors enjoy shopping for unique gifts at the Museum's Amazing Body Store. History :As a result of the 1962 "Victory Over Polio" campaign, sponsored by the Harris County Medical Society and the Junior Chamber of Commerce, a citizens committee consisting of George Morse, Oveta Culp Hobby, Morgan Davis and Gail Whitcomb recommended that permanent health exhibits be constructed for public display. With funds raised through public contributions to the polio immunization program, along with contributions from physicians and a grant from Houston Endowment Inc., the Harris County Medical Society initiated plans to construct public health education exhibits.On November 16, 1969, the Museum came to life as the “Museum of Medical Science” in the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Over the next 21 years, Museum patrons enjoyed exhibits and outreach programs, helping fulfill the need for quality health information and education. Building a separate institution dedicated to health education had been a dream of the Museum's founders for many years. Following a successful $9.5 million capital campaign, the magnificent John P. McGovern Building was built in the heart of Houston's Museum District. The Museum of Health & Medical Science opened its doors on March 16, 1996.In late 2001, the Museum's Board of Trustees recognized the unparalleled contribution of Dr. John P. McGovern to the Museum's success. Upon the trustees' unanimous vote, the Museum was renamed the John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science.In 2006, the Museum celebrated its tenth anniversary and launched a new brand, including a fresh logo. The Health Museum is dedicated to becoming an even greater vehicle for families to understand their bodies, take proactive measures to be healthy, live longer and begin to counteract the rapidly rising costs of managing health.
