The museum itself is very modern looking and aesthetic. A wide variety of attractions kept the kids busy! It was a lot of fun for the kids, and for us as well! it is educational and a memorable experience for the whole family. I definitely recommend for a family with children between 3-10. I recommend going in the morning!!! I... More

Interactive, good variety of activities (outdoor water play area, indoor stations with staff e.g. making large bubbles, interactive exhibits - sound waves, ocean waves, volcanic eruptions, earthquake), and appropriate for wide range of ages (mine range from 7 - 12).

Overall, I don't like Houston. I hate the traffic and the humidity, but for this ONE place, I will put up with a lot in order to visit it. It is fun on a whole new level. Every museum in the USA should model their establishments after this one. Award winning for a reason. I'd go again tomorrow if I... More

First of all, comparing with other prices in Houston, this one worth money spent there. Kids really enjoyed and we were there two times.

Took my kids to the children's museum to view the farm and the weather station, and activity room. My kids loved it and learned a lot. My fav was the farm exhibit, looking at the baby chickens and learning about farming.

Family of 6 children ranging in age 4-17 went for Halloween. Very disappointing. It was very over crowded and entrance was not cheap. They had stations set up within the museum to give candy. Maybe a total of 8-9 stations that gave one small piece of candy at every station. The bag they gave to collect the candy was bigger... More
