I could not get over how much there is to do for kids of all ages. You could spend hours there and still not get to everything. It was not that crowded since it was the first week back to school for the locals.

I took our kids to visit the museum and I didn't know how much fun it would be. I got lost because it was so big inside. The kids loved running around being as loud as they wanted and having a great time. We watched a secret agent show, ate lunch, did cool learning activities and had a wonderful time.... More

My 8 and 10-year-old grandchildren love this place. They were engaged for a whole morning in the rocket ship and Lego car building area. Although I will say that area where you do a job and make money was a bit confusing at first. Still wouldn't miss it and we will go back when we visit again.

The Houston Children's museum is by far the winner. Each area tests the children's ability with so many hands on areas. Can't wait to go back again with the grandkids.

This children's museum has a nice baby and toddler area upstairs that is very young child friendly. The downstairs has science area, building area, and interesting cultural exhibits. I think it is fun for a couple of hours, not too long as it is loud and crowded with children in small area. If you have young children, you have to... More

My 2 years old grandson enjoyed the games there. He played everything he could touch. A good place to spend about 2 to 4 hours there.
