Miraculous Museum

This museum is WONDERFUL! It provides a great hands-on learning environment and family learning is highly encouraged throughout the museum, so you can have fun playing with your kids while they learn. Children are encouraged to learn through play and experimentation. The have many terrific galleries, each of which engages the child's mind. Finally, the staff people, which are on the floor in nearly every exhibit,... view more

GREAT for All Ages

Children of all ages love the interactive exhibits. The price is great, really inexpensive. Maybe they could expand the facillity to have many more exhibits and performing arts activities.

Fun for toddlers

The Children's Museum is a great place to spend some quality time with your little ones. My 2 year old had a great time. We will go back again. Additionally, the price of admission can't be beat.

Cool for parents too!

By far the best place to take your kids and have a good time yourself. The price is right and there is always something new to see

It doesn't get much better than this!!!

When my family and I visited the Children's Museum of Houston, we were extremely impressed by the coexistence of so much fun and educational opportunities present. The staff made us feel as if we were truly welcome, and they made sure that we were having a good time. The museum was not only there to please the children, but it also brought out the child in the grownup visitors as well. I highly recommend the Children... view more

Interactive Fun

This is a great place for a family outing. They have stuff for kids of all ages (yes Mom & Dad, you are included too!) And, unlike a normal quite, hands off museum, the kids can touch, create, and have a great time learning! This is a great place to encourage kids to have a ""life-long"" love of learning!

very interactive

Lots of neat interactive displays that are very interesting for kids to do with their hands. By the way I have been to the Children's Museum in Chicago at Navy Pier and it's not 1/2 as good as Houstons. My children can play for hours in the ""river courtyard"" learning about how water flows. There's really a lot of things to do for my 2 year old, 4 year old, as well as my 10 year old. The staff is very friendly a... view more

Kids Paradise

We went for the first time when my son was only 1. He had a blast and enjoyed all of the exhibits. The infant and toddler section is superb, we could have spent hours in just this area. All of the employees were extremely helpful and seemed to really enjoy the kids. We loved the science section and the grocery area; the only area needing some attention was the international area. As always the cost of food was ... view more
