Would have been nice to have done it with a guided tour instead of a walk on your own. But there was some great photo's of past hurricanes.

They had a lizard, and two geckos, and a toad. I watched a video on Hurricane Ike and did a TV weather report. And best of all, the house was not packed with screaming first graders.

I went to all the trouble of driving from one end of the city to the museum, battling traffic, only to find a sign on the door stating that it was closed due to being relocating. Not sure what is going on with the museum. Please call before hand

A small museum in a house, but lots of interactive stuff for the kids to do. We went with a school field trip so we had a tour guide. He made it fun for the kids and invited them to participate in his demonstrations frequently.

We went to see this museum on the same day as several others. I had planned to spend an hour here based on the museum's website. There is metered parking along Caroline St., of if available, free curb parking on Palm Street next to the museum. The sign in front of the museum is not easily seen until you are... More

I visited this museum while exploring the Museum District. It is a small museum, as if someone who was a weather geek converted a floor of their house. There is some interesting information here, though, and some good photographs of tornados, hurricanes, floods, etc. This is definitely worth a quick stop, although a borderline good value, given the entry fee.

if unfamiliar with Texas weather. A small museum that doesn't take you long to explore. A lot of information about hurricanes and a chance to practice your weather forecasting skills. Good for a short visit.

The small museum is in the Museum District of Houston - accessible by tram. t's small but very interesting and gives advices related to the hurricanes. Fortunately I live in a country where we don't have hurricanes but it's amazing to see all the damages. A bit too expensive for what you can see inside ...

I took my four youngest kids (ages 7-13) to the Weather Museum as part of our Houston museum tour trip. We recently concluded a study of clouds, so this was a fine opportunity to reinforce what we'd learned about weather. Although the museum is very small, it contains a wealth of information, visuals, artifacts, memorabilia, and some great learning activities.... More
