Our daughter grew up in the Houston area and we have visited this museum many many times. This and is one of the most incredible children’s museums I have ever seen. Probably best for children under about 12.

Can't say that I'm impressed by it. For reference my son is eight years old. Sure he can play there all day and have fun but I felt the learning opportunities were limited. I wouldn't pay to visit it again.More

Hey, Suzy! The Museum recommends arriving early or arriving late during the day. That also depends on the season; during the school year, crowd comfort is at it's best.

There are portions suitable for all ages. Both my 9 year old and developmentally delayed 5 year old were able to find things to enjoy. I saw many toddlers around!
