On Saturday, January 19, the museum unveils Newton Know-How, a dynamic, hands-on exhibit that teaches children about Isaac Newton's laws of motion. Kids put physics to the test as they send golf-ball trains through a mini roller coaster, create a chain reaction of falling dominos, spin tops to test angular momentum, and watch how gravity makes balls accelerate through a spiral track. Meanwhile, a project table allows visitors to make take-home physics toys out of everyday materials. Current exhibits include Remember Your First Car?, which is currently holding a promotion to win one of two pedal cars.

The Children's Museum of Houston offers free admission on select days; consult the schedule to make sure you redeem your Groupon at the most opportune time. Children younger than 1 year of age are always admitted for free.

Children’s Museum of Houston

While many children learn by performing hands-on tasks, school systems have yet to figure out how to incorporate gardens, imagination workshops, and towering aqueduct mazes into their budgets. With 90,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits, the Children's Museum of Houston sparks creativity by allowing kids to explore 14 learning stations. Ranked No. 1 among the 10 best children's museums in the nation by Parents magazine, named one of the 12 best children's museums in the country by Forbes.com and one of the 10 best by USA TODAY, and voted Best Museum in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 by the Houston A-List Poll, the museum has accrued a lot of praise. The Huffington Post has also given a nod to the Children's Museum of Houston, which encourages children to explore their curious nature with a variety of interactive exhibits. Exhibits include the interactive EcoStation, a solar-powered outdoor utopia with activities such as stream creation and leaf rubbing that inspire kids to think about environmental responsibility. At the Invention Convention workshop, kids can explore engineering possibilities with building blocks, propellers, and even basic robotics. The sprawling cityscape of Kidtropolis invites children to participate in a simulated economy. The experience requires them to earn paychecks, budget money on pretend debit cards, vote for political candidates, and learn how to obsessively check milk expiration dates at the onsite grocery store.
