Other then the Space Center and the Zoo, what are the "must do" touristy things to do in Houston next weekend?

Or should I just head down to Galveston and enjoy some time there?

Into history, museums, good places for photography, and great food.

you are most welcome. I had an actual list. Longer than what is already posted. But I am a very lazy person and never got around to posting the entire list. Which itself wasn't even complete.
