Discovery Green 1500 McKinney, Houston, Texas, 77010
Appropriate for Any Age
The Listening Vessels in Downtown’s Discovery Green may be one of the coolest things in Houston. These 2 limestone sculptures have concave interiors that focus sound waves. You can sit in 1 vessel and be heard in the 2nd vessel that is 70 feet away.
These Listening Vessels are tucked away in the Wortham Foundation Gardens in Discovery Green. If you are at the playground or the stage, you may not even know they are there. If you walk over towards the Hilton, you will find these waiting to amaze you.
The kids sat on the little seats in the vessels and amused themselves for quite a long time. You can really speak in a normal voice on 1 side and be heard clearly 70 feet away. This unexpected part of Discovery Green made our day.
