The Children's Museum is a great place to bring kiddos, but it can get really crowded, which can make it hard to keep track of them. The water play area outside is fun when it's warmer outside, and the new engineering area is really fun for kids and grownups. It's great for a rainy day because so much of it... More

Took 4 gandchildren to Museum after 4 hours I asked them if they were ready to leave the answer was NO so we stayed another 2 hours. Was a great experience and a great day.

We have visited the Children's Museum of Houston several times with our children. This last visit was another great experience. Our 9 year old was thrilled with the secret agent spy game (for ages 8 and up and requires a modest additional fee). Our 6, 4, and 2 year old had a blast exploring the rest of the museum. We...

Lots of fun for all ages. The tot spot here is amazing and has a whole area outside for play too. Could easily spend 3-4 hour here and the price isn't bad when that is factored in. Parking is $7 to $9 but very accessible.

We visited this with our 4-year old for a few hours and she loved it, we could have easily spent all afternoon there. There is something to do for all children, including a "kid town" which has different stations were kids can play doctor, veterinarian, run a restaurant, and so forth. There is even an outdoor water play station.

I went with my 6 years old daughter, she enjoyed her day here, specially in the role playing place (taking roles such as a detective, a cook, a doctor), actually its one of the best places for children at Houston. Its also a very good educational place, where children could grasp more knowledge about scientific theories in practice.

This museum is great. It has a lot of interactive activities for children. The super market area (Kidtroplis) and water works station outside provides both fun and educational experience. They also have a great play space. The area for toddlers is a plus as well. Overall this children museum has everything you need for a fun and informative day out... More

Lots of fun things to do, price seemed comparable to most museums. The activities were geared towards about one year olds all the way up to older kiddos. Many of the exhibits are interactive, but I could see some of them being better for older kids or those on a field trip (almost too interactive). My son uses a wheelchair,... More
