Explore Asia Grand Opening Weekend at Asia Society Texas Center

Celebrate the grand opening of Asia Society Texas' new permanent exhibition Explore Asia, highlighting five Asian countries—China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam—across six unique experiences. 


Explore Asia is the only interactive learning exhibition in Texas focused specifically on Asia. Visitors can travel across time and space on a virtual bullet train, learn about delicious meals and treats (and where to find them in Houston), participate in a drum performance, and more.


Each day in the three-day Explore Asia Grand Opening Weekend begins with a lion dance and features all-ages fun, food trucks, and activities in celebration of the exhibition. 


Free timed tickets are available for two-hour time slots each day.



Timed entry is free with RSVP, which is required online or for walk-up visitors. RSVP or learn more


Admission to the interactive Performances Across Asia Drumming Experience is separate of general admission; tickets are limited-quantity and cost $6 per guest. Order tickets or learn more.
