If you enjoy the museum thing, get the Houston City Pass. It will save you a lot. Plenty of dinosaur and kid friendly displays.
The Zoo is kid friendly, it has educational programs that are excellent. My grandkids love to visit it. Parking can be difficult during weekends and holidays.
Displays are interesting. Occasional special exhibits are usually very interesting. Check websites for special exhibits.
The Museum has completed a major renovation of the paleontolgy hall and updated the exhibits to reflect current scientific thought. Bring your kids and be prepared to be amazed. Also check out the new energy hall and the gems and minerals.
Loved the Egyptian area.... Almost felt like a cemetery because they had so many coffins and mummies! Lots of dinosaur replicas too. The gemstone area was lacking labels.
