It was raining and I was looking for a place to take the kids indoors. They played with huge checker games and the play house and grocery area. Other than that I would say dont bring small kids.

My children in my life love this place. It is extremely educational and fun and includes many different ways to teach children about the health and science of the human body. This is a great indoor activity to do with your children during the heat of Houston's summers.

Ostensibly a 'children's museum' my teenage son and I enjoyed our visit. Interesting activities for all esp the brain teaser puzzles!

It definitely not the most sophisticated museum. Being from a science background I didn't learn anything new but had some childish fun with my girlfriend. The museum is small and most of the exhibits are interactive. We also spent 3 more dollars so we could go to the cell lab and do some simple fun experiments like looking at cheek... More

We weren't sure what to expect from this museum, and we were pleasantly surprised. Good exhibitions for kids, teenagers and adults alike. We added $3 each for the Lab, which our 'scientific' 15 yrs old enjoyed very much. One get to perform real experiments and lab procedures. Very cool!

There are some good parts of this museum that are worth noting. It does provide some interesting information about the human body, especially the 3D "movie" shown in the theater. I was also surprised to see some exhibits that have to do with mental health (the one about sharing a secret is excellent) and I am glad that they are... More

We expected a serious museum but there was nothing which we found interesting. It basically explains the human body on a low level. The way it is conveyed is for kids. But probably even kids will not like it because the computer technology is totally outdated and often not even functional. Waste of time!

Although this is not advertised as a museum for children it is in fact directed at non scientific general public as well as children which surprised us but in the end we found it such fun that we spent quite a few hours playing with the various exhibits. We had accidently chosen a day which was dedicated to honour National... More

I was sort of disappointed in this one. It really should be part of the adjacent Children's Museum. Most of the exhibits are geared toward middle school kids at best. Not much of interest for adults.

Lived in Houston most of my life but only just took my 8 year old to the Health Museum! What a surprise! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and the exhibits. A definite must visit if you've done the Children's museum, and/or The Zoo and still have a few hours or a rainy day to fill. The Human Body exhibit was... More
