This is a really wonderful museum with a lot of state of the art exhibits. The beating heart is very cool. Lots of easy to follow, interactive and educational exhibits. The gift shop also has lots of unique items!

Our recent visit was January 2017. I really wanted to take my family to experience Body Worlds the current exhibit.. I have a 19 year old,16 year old,4 year old,3 year old grandson and my husband. It is not very often that I can find something that could be appealing to our group because of the difference of ages but... More

What fun. Especially for kids and adults who don't know much about science. It has only one floor but most is interactive. Exhibits include the five senses, how the brain works, a simulated heart attack, mind teaser puzzles and, best of all, the Debakey Cell Lab. For $3 visitors dress in lab coat and goggles, then follow computer directions to... More

Many of the areas of interest relied on outdated tech, touch screen tech or photo technology that is readily available on an app. The other areas were either too simple to be interesting or boring. When compared with the awe inspiring content of the museum of science this is a real dud.

My children have always loved visiting this museum. Located so close to the others so make time to scoot on over there. Very nice.

At first we thought what's a 'Health Museum'. Turns out it's fun. Very interactive, nice exhibits for the kids and good learning opportunities. It's small so you don't need a ton of time to visit. Plan it as a part of another outing in the Museum district or as a stand alone 1/2 day item. It is often not overly... More

I really didn't think I would like it so much. I played brain games and got to learn about the human body in new and creative ways. Great for kids, awesome for adults!

The first time I visited I was six and could remember being overwhelmed by how awesome all the exhibits were. Coming back with my younger sister and after the museum being revamped for better quality, I was disappointed. Maybe it was being older and more cynical, or maybe the museum had taken a turn for the worse. It is educational... More

Our entire family went and we had so much fun. Not only did we all have fun we all learned so much! I also left my iPad in the screaming booth. My iPad was turned in to the information center. How wonderful is that! Everyone is super nice here!
