Our family LOVED the Children's Museum. We have a 2 and 4 year old and they had a blast. This place is huge! It took us 3.5hrs to go through the whole thing, and we didn't even do everything. We will for sure be going back.

It is a huge museum. Best age would be from 1-8 years old. Lots of educational stuff. Parking for all day of $8.00. I like this place as much as Disney World for my children. Will keep coming back. Excellent ticket and food price, too.

This museum is totally designed for kids. They change the exhibits on a regular basis. Very kid friendly. Every kid loves this place.

Plenty of activities for the children and adults can have fun too. I would recommend visiting during the weekday, because it can get really crowded on a Saturday. You will have a great time!

Excellent activities from self face painting, water play and a fully equipped play grocery store to science and farming exhibits (ever wanted to milk a cow? Their faux one is ready to try) and a tv studio, means a wide range of ages can play and learn at the same time. Loved it and have been back several times.

This was our kids favorite attraction in Houston. With their kids ATM machines (and parent allowances) as well as Kids TV station etc etc. Its a must visit if you have young kids.

Big place with lots to do, but if you have a toddler a I would to take. All in all it looked fun. Though I thought 9 dollars a person including toddler age was a little high. Think toddler price should be a littler cheaper.
