Great for kids

This place is awesome for kids, and adults too. Great learning experience. The outdoor water sections is really neat. And the food isn't too bad either. Parking is $8.00

20 month old son loved this place. They have outside activities with water and play sets. Lots of things for kids of all ages. I took my 20 month old son and 13 year old daughter and they were both entertained. Best place for the baby was the tot spot. Will be back!!!!!

We visited the Children's Museum as part of the Houston City Pass. It was awesome. We had 3 kids ranging from 4 years to 7. They all had a fabulous time, and we wished we could have stayed past closing time! Allow plenty of time. They have the best hands-on (consumables) science lab, and the Kidtropolis, though we didn't get... More

We have been to several children's museums over the years, and this was probably the best. We have kids of ages 6, 10, and 13. All three had a good time.

We took my three year old here while visiting the area. This is truly one of the best children's museums we have been to. The children's play town was real, authentic, and very engaging. I would highly recommend taking any age group to this museum!

Our kids were 10 & 12 and loved it. I wouldn't bring young kids. We visited on a rainy Saturday. It was super crowded and parking was sparse.. We had a city pass so it was a great deal.. Lots of innovative things for kids to experience!
