Bring the kids along to The Houston Museum of Natural Science and iFLY Indoor Skydiving - Houston (Memorial). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, have some family-friendly fun at The Escape Game Houston, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo.
