Fun for younger kids

Lots of hands on activities for kids. They really enjoy the " Dino dig". Always fun to see the films at the omni theatre.

My wife and I were not very impressed with this museum. It has limited exhibits and most are geared to small to pre-teen children. I went without my kids and for us it was not worth the admission price or time. The planetarium opened at 2 PM and we were there at 10:30 AM. No way we could wait that... More

Went to see an IMAX movie which was nice and you get free into Planetarium w/entrance fee to museum. Planetarium show was ok- but more geared towards kids as was the museum overall- mostly kids focused and I think would be a good one for kids. One of the exhibits, about Innovation sponsored by IBM was basically an ad for... More

I gave this place a 5 star because we had a lot of fun with our 5 year old. The wind activity was a big hit. So was the planetarium with Elmo and Big Bird. Definitely not for child older than 10 so it should be named the Children's Museum.

I loved visiting here as a kid. There were tons of historical exhibits and lots of astronomy-themed items. Now, not so much. It seems like they are trying to compete with the Perot as far as hands on. Over half of the ground level is now a Children's Museum for ages 7 and under. Another chunk is hands-on science activities,... More

This is very hands on exhibits. Taking young people is a must in this museum. You may have to be patient to take your turn or just watch others.

Yes, we had the run of the place so for event planners, this was a good pick. But, I will be back here with my teens on vacation time. It starts with a large beam from the World Trade Towers. I goosebump as I type this. No hype, no dramatics or weird lighting, it is just there and very well... More

They have so many awesome things for children under the age of 8 years old. My husband and I are kinda nerdy and were looking to enjoy a morning of learning interesting information. Most of the museum (read: interesting looking areas) were experimental stations to learn by doing. Those are only accessible to children. Adults like to learn by doing... More
