The Houston Museum of Natural Science Reviews
展覽空間大，購買票券參觀了古生物館、埃及展，東西很多，令人大開眼界，可以逛一整個下午，非常適合親子活動。博物館內僅有一家速食店，用餐時間大排長龍，要等很久。附近的停車位很搶手，如果太晚到達可能會找不到停車位。 more »The exhibition space is large, the ticket ticket is the paleontological, Egyptian exhibition, a lot of things, it's eye-opening, you can go around all afternoon, very much in the same place. There is a fast food restaurant in the museum, and it takes a long time to wait for a long time to eat. Parking is very handy nearby, and if it's too late you may not find a stop.
Amazing displays, some of which are available ONLY IN HOUSTON! This is a must see for those interested in who lived here long before us... more »
I went with my family a few weeks back (I'm 16 fem, an 18yr old brother, and both of my parents) and I have to say I prefer museums over anything like six flags or SeaWorld. If you or anyone in your family has a fascination for dinosaurs, GO!!! The exhibit is gorgeous and even if you aren't being toured the staff will talk to you and your family. There are many beautiful areas to visit that you don't need to pay extra for, my family was probably there for three hours looking at everything. I'm not sure this is quite the place for younger children; unless they have an appreciation for pieces of history and life not much more will keep them entertained than a few minutes in most of the exhibits; if you can manage to go without the little ones I really suggest it! Being able to look at everything and just appreciate it is the best part of the experience! If going alone I'd suggest to bring a pair of headphones to really get an ambience while you look around. I'd also suggest to being a cooler and leave it in your car so you won't have to A. Have to pay for McDonald's or something at a museum, and B. You won't have to leave and lose your parking space!!! There are plenty of shady areas by the museum to settle and have a nice lunch, and it's nice to have a little break to sit and get fresh air! The bathrooms were very clean and I never had to wait or search hard to find one. This was a great experience and I'd love to visit again with my family or some friends! If you think even a little that you'll like visiting, I can promise you will!
What an absolutely incredible museum - it is so extensive and informative you could spend all day there learning and getting some amazing photos. The "Death by Natural Causes" exhibit is a must visit while it's there because it's hilarious, informative and frightening! I can't wait to go back and see this museum again.
