This was a great children's museum with a lot of variety of activities. My four year old daughter had a great time, but there was tons of stuff that older kids would enjoy. Very educational and entertaining.

She couldn't stop moving and exploring. It is best to have an additional adult or older sibling to take video of the toddler's reactions - they are priceless. You will be amazed.

I've seen a lot of art museums. This is a good one. We spent five very pleasant hours and saw everything in the regular exhibits. Didn't see any of the "pay extra" exhibits, which were probably very good, but had a very good experience.

This museum has one level of fun, in my opinion. The Kidtropolis was great!! It is like a mini-city, just for kids. There is a vet clinic, an ambulance and Police car, a bank, a H-E-B, and much more. There also was a ‘lab’ where...More

Whitney - We are sorry it seemed crowded. We see a lot of people during the summer months since this is when families have the most tie to visit. We hope you enjoyed our other 12 galleries and outdoor spaces as well.
