6th Annual Halloween Car Show
Featuring more than 100 cars from classic to contemporary, the sixth annual Halloween Car Show was once again a spooky good time for all car enthusiasts. NMFH would like to thank everyone that came out for the event and helped to make it another great year. Feel free to browse some of the pictures we took of both the scary cars and the delightful ghouls.
Holiday Can Food Drive
Since millions of people die each year of hunger, NMFH is taking a stand and joining the fight against hunger. During November and December, visitors of the museum will receive $1 off admission with a non-perishable can good donation, benefiting the Houston Food Bank.
Community Memorial Tree
With the help of the local community, NMFH will decorate a special holiday tree to recognize and honor our departed friends and family. During December, visitors can decorate a paper holiday ornament at the museum and write the name of a deceased loved one. The ornament will be displayed on the holiday tree in the museum’s rotating exhibit space. Families are welcome to decorate and take home a special ornament for their own tree.
