Well the exhibits were nice the value was not quite there. What they don't tell you is what's not included. This pass is general admission only. After spending over 222 for two adults and two kids, calculated we only spent roughly $120 total had we just bought the same tickets that we had access to. If you want to do anything at the aquarium including ride the train you must buy separate tickets. However for $24 you can buy an unlimited pass for everything. At the museum, the general admission seems to be a decent value however, again when you do the math and what you have access to it's really not quite there. Highly suggest pre-purchasing the tickets and finding the coupon codes.no value

This is a very economical pass and it was very easy to get into the attractions. It is only for general admission to the places so we paid extra for the amusement park at the aquarium and the exhibit at the natural science center. We were only able to do 4 out of the 5 places because the weather was 100 degrees everyday we were here so we didn’t make it to the boardwalk. Highly recommend this pass though.

This was a great way to experience Houston. We went to the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural Science on our first day. Both were excellent museums, and we could have spent another day exploring these. We also went to the Johnson Space Center the second day. This was quite worth the trip. We had planned to also go to the zoo and the aquarium but time slipped away from us. If you make full use of the pass, it is definitely worth the price. We bought three, but then discovered our son could get a military discount at most of the places, so we didn't need the third pass. Check for that if military applies to anyone in your group. But it was still a good deal.

We were in Houston last year and bought this citypass. I guess the value is really good but to be honest there's really not a lot to see in Houston. Space Center is really old, Art Museum is just average, water park is just a joke. Maybe with kids it's more worth but as couples we enjoyed the food there rather than the culture.

Good value if you intend on going to all the attractions anyway. You may find you can't get to the 5 you want to visit as some of the tickets are one or the other.

Our family purchased these and it was a great deal to super sightseeing options. We enjoyed visiting NASA, the zoo, the Science museum and Kemah boardwalk. All these were perfect fun for the family and we had much savings buying it this way! Works great and you have enough time to fit it all in with the citypass. Highly recommend-

My husband and I recently used the Houston CityPASS on our first trip to Houston a couple of weeks ago. The price for the book was a great value for what venues you were able to visit. The only downside to it was that we were only there for a few short days so we weren't able to use everything in the book...but we did go to 4 of the 5!!

We used the pass to go to the Aquarium, NASA and Kemah and this pass basically gets you in the door and very little else. Be aware that there will be many hidden extras. Parking at each place cost $5-10. At the aquarium, the stingray, shark ride is an extra $10 per person. At, Kemah we had to wait in a 45 min lime to get a pass bracelet with other ticket buyers even though we had already purchased our passes at another venue. They need a fast pass lane for those that have already purchased theirs.(This was available at the other venues) Your pass doesn’t cover certain rides at Kemah so extra costs. This will be true at the science museum as well. The pass gets you in but there are multiple exhibits that you will pay extra for. Beware that the crowds at NASA and Kemah were so large time to wait was extremely long. It makes me sad that young families will pay $$$$ for vacation because of these venues sticking to them in every way possible.

Thank you for your feedback. Many of the Houston attractions do offer extra rides, exhibits, movies, etc., for an extra cost. You can see exactly what is included with CityPASS admission for no additional charge on our website at www.citypass.com/houston/plan-your-visit-houston#tab=admission.

I went to space center, natural museum, and museum of fine arts, they are great and worthy!
However, the aquarium is horrible.
I went there because Houston city pass includes the ticket.
It was depressing to see the fishes and a tiger getting trapped in such an awful place.
The aquarium was annexed to a restaurant, and at the entrance there is a two-floor high tube. However, The tube is so narrow that the long fishes could barely extend the body. I saw a green, long fish curling itself. It is longer than the diameter of the tube so it could barely move. The poor thing could not swim backward or forward, only up or down. How terrible!
It is a living jail for the finish.
The tiger is lonely and irrigative. It also lives in very poor condition.
I feel totally upset after the visit. This is absolutely animal cruelty.
I keep thinking about the poor animals after leaving Houston. The city shall close the aquarium since it fails to provide a humane environment for the animals. And it is a shame that City Pass endores such a place.

When spending time in visiting Houston, if you have plans to visit the major attractions in Houston, do yourself a favor and purchase the City Pass on your phone. Two days will allow you to have plenty of time to see five of the 7 major attraction for $62 for adults, less for children. If you’ve only got one day to visit 3 attractions, you’d break even, with no waits in lines to purchase admission tickets.
If you only have time to visit 1-2attraction, just purchase individual tickets at the ticket window of the attraction.
The City Pass is an excellent value if visiting 3 or more attractions and it’s good for 9 consecutive days.
