This is a great place to bring the kids on a cold or rainy day, which yes Texas does have them. My son really enjoyed the different activities that the museum offered. We stayed all day.

My children LOVED this museum especially the grocery store! They had so much fun that they didn't want to leave and they are constantly asking to go again! They have an art room where they can paint, a newspaper, a grocery store, an ambulance, a camping area, dress up. a good variety of 'places'.

This is a great place to take the kids and let them run wild and soak up learning while playing. It is a perfect place to take the kids on a rainy day.
