My 3 yr old (and both of us) simply loved the dinosaur exhibits. I also liked the education videos on different forms of energy. We were there for only 2 hours. I need to go back and see the space video and the other stuff they have. Priced about right - even better with corporate discounts.

This is one of our most frequently visited attractions. The museum has always something new and exiting each time you go, be it the exhibitions or the IMax movies, even with surprise from time to time, such as the beautiful orchid show in the hall!

Only the downside is the price which goes up quite a bit. But comparing to all other venues it is still a very good value.

I like very much the Natural Science Museum and I saw twice the dinosaur exhibition which is really first rate. My 18 year old son saw it even 3 times! But I think the entrance fee is way to high. I always thought museums are for the public not just for some wealthy ones like opera, concerts, etc. Something has to change about funding. Actually I find it also sad that the Houston Grand Opera, Jones Hall and such institutions are so enormously high priced.
