    The HMNS is a fabulous museum. The exhibits are well worth the time and effort. Children and adults of all ages will surely be captivated and inspired. The HMNS offers unique learning experiences. If you are in Houston, this is a state-of-the-art facility, which benefits from professional leadership.

    I parked for free in the small parking by the front main entrance. I walked with my family to all exterior exhibits and took many pictures. We went inside the center and requested to visit the gift shop alone. Anyone is allowed to do this, you get almost an hour to see and purchase many great things at this store. We saved $130+ in tickets by doing this. We went on the Solar Eclipse week so we got to take special exterior pictures too. Once in the main entrance you can also glance and take some quick pictures in the main atrium area.

    Really enjoyed visiting the museum a couple of months ago. There was a wide variety of art to view from old to neat to quite interesting and I even got to see a Picasso (which surprised me)! The only negative I really have is that the layout is really screwy and it's hard to navigate because of this.

    Excellent zoo! The usual animals, like elephants and giraffes, are nicely displayed. There's lovely, shaded walking paths. Takes at least 2 hours to walk around.
    In addition to the typical animals, there's an aquarium in the Galaogos Islands exhibit!
    Don't miss it!
    Only criticism is parking lots are enormous. It would be helpful to have numbered signs or signs with different animals posted to help find your car after your zoo visit.

    Great food and beautiful ball stadium. My husband and I took our young grandsons to watch the Blue Jays and had dinner there. We sat once on the first base line, low down and one in the mid-section of left field. I preferred the higher seats.as you could see more. We had nachos and hot dogs, all good. The only downside is that the wine was TERRIBLE. We went two nights, and had a glass each, both equally bad.

    The ballpark staff were very helpful and friendly and it was really easy to get in and out, even after the game.

    We had a great visit here on our trip to Houston. Our 5 year old loved the entire place! There is a lot of variety here for kids of all ages. Large enough to fit all the people. There were a lot of people on a busy Saturday, however our daughter got to do everything she wanted to do with no wait time. Great place to check out. Prices are reasonable for the amount of activities. You could literally stay all day if you wanted.

    The fit of the dress is also fantastic. I am quite petite and often struggle to find dresses that fit me well. However, this dress comes in different sizes, including petite, which was a game-changer for me. The dress hugs my body in all the right places without being too tight or uncomfortable. The length is also perfect, hitting right above my knees, making it appropriate for both work and social events.

    Fantastic niche museum! My wife and I spent more than 2 hours to do everything, including their quiz. Very informative and a huge collection of hearses and artifacts. Admission was very reasonable for what you got. I doubt it could hold a child's interest, but even adults that don't think they will be interested are in for a surprise!

    I grow milkweed in pots and raise monarch butterflies in my backyard and love to see the other species at the Butterfly Center.

    The exhibit was very moving and showed the history of the Jewish persecution from the beginning of Nazi's rise in power all the way liberation. There are plenty of documentaries and artifacts throughout the tour. A lot of descriptive placards in both English and Spanish.
    It took about 3h for me to finish the entire tour. I like many of the exhibits related to World War II. The history of the Holocaust is no exception and this place was definitely on my to-do list when I visited Houston. I was not disappointed by this museum.

    World class museums can be found here, and there are several close together. If you have a lot of time and plan to visit more than one, you can park your car and walk among them. Together they form a very pretty part of town.

    This is a hidden gem that I was not aware of. Modern art and a wide range of collectibles. Worth the trip as it is exhibited in a spacious building allowing for very unusual pieces .
