We go to this museum as It is beside the Childrens museum and Arts museum. This museum is really lot to offer for all ages. Its very Educational and very informative. Lots of things to see and do. It has 3 floor. You will need all day to see everything. There is free parking next to it beside the rose garden also very beautiful place to visit. All must go and enjoy.

We first tried to visit the museum on a Saturday afternoon but was deterred upon walking in the door with the sight of birthday parties. We then tried the next day on a Sunday and it was much less hectic. The exhibition we wanted to see was the History, Mystery, and Wonder. It was nicely set up but I was a bit disappointed that there were no signs indicating what the items were or any history of origin/date/if a replica/etc. I go to museums to learn, not guess, so the part of the exhibition title is correct ... Mystery & Wonder. $30 for two adults to see that exhibit/general admission should have warranted information on the items. Overall, it is a nice museum with friendly employees and free parking. We will definitely be back

First, a warning: many of the photos posted here by reviewers are from exhibits located at the larger HMNS in Houston. Be aware that this site is much smaller! We (2 senior adults with no children along) recently visited here during our time exploring the Houston, TX, area. We had already visited the bigger museum in Houston and wanted to check this one out as well, since we love natural science/history. Though much smaller than Houston’s facility, this site has several interesting galleries, including a new one on salt, crystals, geology, and energy (although the video screens were not working during our visit). Upstairs, for a small additional fee, we explored a very interesting exhibit called “History, Mystery, & Wonder.” We have now seen a good number of Cabinet of Curiosities type exhibits at natural history museums, and we really enjoy them. Huge displays of global artifacts, animal bones, shells, insect specimens, etc.—everything a natural scientist would collect, study, and display. So many shelves and even more cabinet drawers were filled with great collections of fascinating objects. Glad we paid the extra cost to see this excellent exhibit. We spent about two hours exploring here. As we were about to leave, a local middle school group of instrumental and vocal musicians arrived to perform a free holiday concert for museum guests. We stayed to watch it and enjoyed it! Thanks for the entertainment, Baines Middle School of Missouri City, TX!

We took our grandsons, ages 4 and 6, on a Saturday morning. Highlights: uncrowded, and the interactive exhibits upstairs were very interesting - maybe more to me than the kids. Lowlight: the pricing model was overly complicated. There are three "special" exhibits that require purchasing "add ons." $10 bucks extra for the grandkids to dig around in a dinosaur excavation pit for 15 minutes? Really? I paid for that one, but didn't pay for the one to play with large legos or the one that had stuffed bears. I would rather pay one price and have free rein of the entire museum.
