  • This is an awesome place to take your kids. The staff is great, they care about what they do. They interact with the children and most of all this is a place where kids can be kids old school. No computers or anything like that. The kids are stimulated by their own imagination with the activities they offer at the Museum, the way kids should be. I personally would recommend this place for birthday parties and just social events for kids
  • Overall this place was nice, but it was a lot smaller than I anticipated. The toddler area is only about 10 X 14. When we went hardly anyone else there, but if there had been more it would have felt very crowded. The exhibits were all really pretty cool, but better for ages 3+. There's a fairly large outdoor area but not much in it - I feel like they're really missing an opportunity there. It definitely had more of an intimate Montessori feel than the Houston Children's Museum, which I like, but we probably won't be back until our daughter is a few years older.
