Small but fun!

I took my 6 year old twins, 5 year old and 2 year old to the health museum and all ages had fun! It's small but a fun way to spend an hour while in Houston!

We enjoyed this museum (kids ages 11, 10, 8, 6). The Body Works exhibit was amazing!!! We did, however, end up at the museum at the same time as several school groups, so it was very crowded.

The Health Museum is a very nice location if you are taking your children to experience a few interactive exhibits while exploring different aspects of the human body. BUT if you are looking for a location to take a large group of students, this is not the location.

Wasn't sure what to expect but found the exhibits fascinating, easy to understand and so educational. Having been thru some medical experiences, I could easily relate to some of the exhibits. What struck me was hoe many people were so absorbed in taking time to study each display. It was a weekend and the place was full. Highly recommend folks... More

Dang. You gotta go here! You will see actual plasticine cutaways of the human body and learn how it works. You get to do a whole lot of interactive things. Pay extra if you have to, or take a group or whatever, but get into the DeBakey Cell Lab. Totally cool. Went on an adult field trip with Vidor (TX)... More

The museum is interesting for all ages. The body works portion is excellent and all of us (adults) learned quite a bit. On weekdays there will be school groups which tends to be crowded, but not really an issue. Price is reasonable. Suggest parking free just kitty corner to the south-east in the Herrmann Park lot rather than the actual... More

Parking lot in front of museum press button for ticket to park. Take receipt to long line to pay for parking when you purchase admission tickets. Free lot across street if you can... More

This museum is quite educational and state of the art with regard to the human anatomy and the effects of illness and smoking upon one’s body. There is a wonderful movie on the making of the cadavers used in the museums displays. The staff is extremely informative and willingly responds to questions. There are a number of interactive displays and... More

Went to the museum to see the Body Works Exhibit and loved it. The admission is affordable at $10 for adults. The exhibit was split into 2 parts. The location is great it's right across the street from Hermann park and The Children's Museum (which is also pretty cool). The sucky part is parking it can be tricky but it's... More
