This was my family's first visit. We are from Fort Worth and we have a children's area that the kids can get hands on with experiments. There was so much to learn here and they didn't even realize they were learning. They wanted to stay all day but we were way too tired. We visited with kids ages 3, 9, and 14. All of them had a blast. The food in the cafeteria is pretty expensive but they offer some good choices. I would suggest bringing your lunch after the cost of the visit ($12 per person) and parking ($9).

For some reason, other facilities in Houston seem to get more press. But the Children's Museum deserves top billing, in our opinion. Even teens will find something fun to do.

This museum has always been a fun place for kids, however they have definitely updated it since I was little. We took my daughter and niece and they LOVED it, they're about three years apart and BOTH found plenty of things to do together and separately. There are indoor and outdoor activities and even areas for really small children. I would recommend trying to go on a weekday that's NOT peak summer time, because it can get excruciatingly packed in there and make it way less fun for the parents.

I have been to the Austin children's museum and this is hands down bigger. It ha so much stuff to do. There is physical activities and creative activities. There is a whole wing on science and aerodynamics. Plan to spend some serious time in there.
