Mission Brief

Mission Brief


Critical Need for Kid Agents Ages 8 and Up

We are putting a callout for agents, ages 8 and up, to help us protect the Museum.

Uncover Clues. Crack Codes. Outsmart Villains. Become a S.E.C.R.E.T. agent today!

Adults are too obvious to be agents, but they may assist their kid recruits. Agents report to duty at the Museum’s Top Secret Gear Shop.



The S.E.C.R.E.T Objective

The Children’s Museum of Houston is under siege! It has been confirmed the Museum has been infiltrated by villains attempting to take over the Museum and steal a potentially unlimited source of energy to power their nefarious inventions! Kids ages 8 and up are encouraged to enlist in the Special Elite Crime Resolution and Espionage Team (aka S.E.C.R.E.T.) to crack codes, uncover clues and outsmart villains. 

S.E.C.R.E.T Mission

The Children’s Museum of Houston needs your help! Energy-emitting crystals were discovered during the Museum’s 2009 expansion. We formed the Special Elite Crime Resolution and Espionage Team (a.k.a S.E.C.R.E.T.) to manage the crystals in our possession for research and testing, with the energy from the crystals being routed throughout the Museum’s exhibits. The crystals have remained safe – UNTIL NOW.

Recently, the Museum endured several attempts to steal the crystals and its energy. The organization responsible is calling itself the Ridiculously Intelligent Villainous Agent League (R.I.V.A.L.) They are under the leadership of the villainous (and annoying) Arcturus Vex who wants to harness the crystals’ energy for his own schemes.

Although we’ve tried our best to ward off this infiltration on our own, the “situation” has escalated, and a decision has been made to enlist only the highest qualified agents. S.E.C.R.E.T., led by Director Hank Angstrom, will take on the difficult task of defeating R.I.V.A.L. Join S.E.C.R.E.T. and become a S.E.C.R.E.T. Agent today!

Unique Interactive Experience

S.E.C.R.E.T. is the Children’s Museum of Houston’s all-new interactive secret agent experience. This revolutionary experience is designed to take a child’s museum visit to the next level, where their knowledge, skills and creativity all come into play to save the day! Kids report to duty and are assigned to go on secret missions throughout the Museum. Using state-of-the-art technology, agents gear up to solve puzzles, discover hidden agendas and defeat the villains’ schemes. They help save the Museum, protecting ordinary citizens who are unaware of their covert operations! Currently, there is nothing like it in Houston or in any children’s museum in the world! Period!

S.E.C.R.E.T. is a museum industry game-changer. The Children’s Museum of Houston commissioned Schell Games, a leading game design and development company (whose clients include worldwide leaders in electronics and theme park industries), to undertake the project. Combining radio frequency identification (RFID) technology with hands-on educational elements that encourage problem solving, critical thinking, data analysis, programming and teamwork, the Museum hot-wired a one-of-a-kind formula that’s similar to, as one agent described it, “A video game brought to life!” Children’s Museums will never be the same again!
