Success! Thanks for posting your review of Houston Museum of Natural Science. You’ve done the world some good today.

Very nice exhibit

If your looking for something to do with the kids, try the Butterfly center. They have one room full of insect exhibits and games before entering a huge bio dome with live butterflies all around. It is a small tour, but if you just kick back and enjoy the scenery you can spend a few hours. The price is like 8 bucks for an adult and 4 for kids above 3..........which makes it the cheapest tour in the Museum.

Great family or date place.

Whether you're a fan of science or just want to spend a few hours in a relaxing, educational environment, this is the place for you. It's affordable, and a great place to take the kids. Also, it's right in the heart of the museum district and within walking distance from Hermann Park and the Houston Zoo.

We ran up the stairs, one of the three staff members at the entrance was kind enough to take our tickets and then.... I have to say upon entering the exhibit rooms I realized the error of my ways... view more

Field Trip Headquarters

What are you looking for when visiting any museum? Expect to be impressed with the unexpected? Museums must now compete with the incredible accessibility of the web. What can they show us without being ""dated""? Even historical presentations must have an ""awh!"" factor to warrant a return for more than group ventilation time. The HMNS is a cheap crowd mover for the unwashed cultural wannabes. This is not to... view more

Voyer to the Past

I was moved to total silence by the enormity of this tragedy. I would love to go back. My twin 8-year old boys were fascinated.
