Things to Do in Houston: Seismique Interactive Art Museum

We recently learned about Seismique, an immersive art experience, from my brother. Seismique is in West Houston off of Highway 6, near West Oaks Mall, in a former Bed Bath and Beyond space. It is similar to the Color Factory in Houston (Upper Kirby), where Sajan and the kids had a great time last year…
