Houston Museum of Natural Science Opens at Telfair Oct. 3
How many communities can
boast an on-site museum as part of their amenity package? Telfair can, now that
the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land opens Oct. 3.
Newland Communities donated the historic Central State Farm building and
surrounding 5.5 acres as the new home for HMNS at Sugar Land, which will kick
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition.
The opening fulfills a vision that began when Newland Communities first acquired
the 2,018-acre site for Telfair nearly 10 years ago. In 2007, Newland donated
the building for the museum after investing approximately $1 million in
renovations. For more information, visit
