Great fun for the entire family!
Nov 2019
Explora is the place to go for interactive science, hands on, experiments. Explora is great for all ages and has different areas to explore. There is the liquid area, the sound area, the amphibian area, the electronics area. We always learn something new when our family goes to Explora. There is also a great outdoor area to eat a sack lunch/snack and the kids can play on the large Jungle Gym...fun... fun... fun! We are from the area so Explora is one of our regular places to go.

Great for you and your kids, especially your kids
Dec 2019
I dropped by to check the place out. Cost adults $7. I was there over an hour just wandering around. I thought some of the exhibits were interesting. Kids were around with a parent of two and looked like they were enjoying themselves. I could see how a couple of hours here with your children would open up those young minds. Good place to go on family outings.

A great learning experience for all young kids especially. It teaches you what makes things work and how they work, also how to create things and explore many different things.

Great place for kids!
Dec 2019
This is a great children's science museum. We got in for free with a museum membership at another one in Texas. There are so many hands on activities and exhibits for kids to play with for all ages. It was definitely something we would come back for. It would be ideal to go here over a course of a few days to get through everything for the kids.

Grandkids LOVED it!
Dec 2019
We went on a weekday over the holiday break and it wasn't very crowded. My granddaughters loved it - especially all of the crafts. They treasure the watercolor painting they got to make. Highly recommend!

Very Pleasant Surprise

We took the grandkids there for an afternoon and found that there is something for everyone! They have a large space with many exhibits to explore. It was a lot of fun.

Wonderful science museum
Jan 2020 • Family
This place was outstanding. We got in free because we just bought a family membership at another science museum in Texas and many have reciprocal exchanges. We were there 5 hours and still didn’t do everything. 13 yo, 10 yo, 4 yo all loved it. Hands-on displays about air flow, currents, water, sand and bubbles (and play with them), simple machines, giant building blocks, rockets, a cool elevator. Very reasonable prices if we had had to pay.

Where was this place when I grew up
Nov 2019
Two stories of Hands On things to touch, watch, see and do. Spent the whole day there with 3 grandkids. Think the adults had more fun than the kids
