  • For those who go to Houston and seek activities with children is an excellent choice. The museum has a lot of interactive activity using science as a base. Kids play and learn a lot. I went on a cold and rainy day and couldn't get on the outside with water toys, but friends commented it's worth it. Feeding Area is very small with few options. Excellent facilities But some toys were broken.

  • Plan on staying for a few hours and tagging along in the fun with the kids. Each area is unique and creative. All areas are HANDS ON and encourages wonder and play. A must if you're visiting from out of town or live in Houston and come regularly. You could easily fill an entire afternoon at this museum. In addition to typical kids museum stuff, there’s a climbing area, a kids metropolis for kids to experience earning and spending money, and even outside area with water activities!
  • Very fun place. A little small and a little tight. It was very busy but my nephew loved it and the people around him. The outside was a dream come true for him. He's too young to understand half the things. I enjoy the one in new Orleans because its toddler friendly. I cant wait to take him back when he starts school.
