The Children's Museum of Houston is a very fun place for kids. The layout is very good for children and keeps them occupied. It is very colorful and wide open, giving kids the freedom to run around and play. The museum is always busy and it is fun for parents as well. Parking is not too bad if you come on the weekend and there is plenty of it around the museum. It is located in the heart of Houston so it is very easy to access.

It really is fun for all ages. I went there as a very young child and just recently. Both times were just as much fun as the other. They have so many cool things to see, and when you leave, you feel as if you've really learned something. This is an awesome institution that really needs your support. I encourage adults and children alike to take a quick visit.

i take my niece here from time to time and she never tires of it. there are so many activities for her to do. it seems like we never get to do everything, since we usually have a maximun of 4 hours. everytime we leave she is begging to stay longer and do one more thing.

I loved this place when my son was very little, under a year. It was the first museum I had seen that actually had an area set up for kids this little. Lots of stimulating toys, mirrors, balls, blocks and different sensory experiences. They have a nice system set up for keeping toys clean as well, as long as the parents follow the rules. The museum wasn't as much fun for a 2-3 year old however, as my son ws to big for the baby area, but not quite big enough for the other stuff. And it seemed like everytime I took him there, he ended up sick. For kids that age, without the cleanliness guidelines of the "Tot Spot", the place can be a real germ factory. I would avoid it during cold an flu season. Now that my son is a little older (4 1/2) it has become more of a fun place again.

They have a great toddler area that my 18 month old could have lived in. They made sure that no older children came in.

The outside play area was very clean, well maintained, and a lot of fun.

There were new exhibits all of the time that were very fun for children and adults.

The Children's Museum is very entertaining and educational for the kids. They have alot of things to do such as a pretend grocery store, face painting, and a wet corner with bubbles for the kids to play in. My kids didn't want to leave!

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, are great sources of information and exceedingly helpful.

The BEST thing about the Children's Museum is that it is free on Thurs. evening. The bad thing is that in the summer it gets REALLY full on free nights. Still you can't beat free. Oh and let's not forget parking is also free on these nights. If you want to beat the crowds, head there on Thursday nights during the winter.

We try to take our son to the Childrens Museum of Houston at least once a year. They always have new and creative exhibits that involve interaction with the children. Our son is now 10 and it never gets old. It's a great family place and we really enjoy the experience.

The Children's Museum of Houston is great. Our children ran around for hours and never got bored. We were amazed at how many things were suited for our toddlers. The toddler spot was amazing and kept them buzy for hours, even the baby could play. All adults that are not accompanied by a child must register at the front desk, so this shows you that security is important to them.

I recently went with some small fry I know through friends. They had a ball! I remember it from my own childhood, and in a way, I wish I hadn't gone because I remembered it so differently. That being said, it was still a cool museum, very interactive and touch-me, which is great for kids.

The Children's Museum is so much fun! The prices are relatively cheap and they have free nights once a week.
The exhibits are a lot of fun for toddlers and pre-teens (and even parents!).
There's a variety of exhibits to choose from; an outdoor pond with fountains to play in, a pretend grocery store with registers and face painting.
Everytime we go, we end up spending the most time at the pond, but the entire place is really fun. (The pond "rules" can be hard to follow since each worker enforces things differently.)
I look forward to each time we go.

The Childrens Museum truly is fun for all ages. I think that when I go there, I have more fun than the kids. This museum is not an "exhibit" museum, instead it is a wonderful place to learn by doing. There is a wide variety of activities from arts and crafts to science experiments.

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.

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.

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's Museum of Houston to all families across the globe!

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!

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 and eager to help the kids.
Lunch area is small, though.

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 a little high, so get a bite before going in.

This really is the best place. They continually update sections of the museum so children never get bored. They have hands on activites and learning! They even have a "Tot Spot" for children two filled with activites for them. It is a great place to go and beat the heat! It is expensive to go each time but the membership is well worth it and parking then only cost $1.
