This museum was top notch! So well maintained and clean. There was so much to do for both my 9 year old and my 5 year old. We would visit again in heart beat!

I took my girls to the Houston Children's Museum 30+ years ago and now I attend with my grandson. It was great in the 80's but is even better now! Thank you for providing a fun filled and educational place for all children!

I took my 8 month old and she had a wonderful time! She was curious with all the activities and the staff there are very friendly and courteous. They also ask you to put the dirty toys (that my daughter drooled all over!) in a mesh bag when you are done playing with them so they can clean them up! She had a wonderful time! I would recommend everyone to bring their kids to this children's museum!

From Our Editors

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 and one of the 10 best by USA Today, and voted Best Museum in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 by the Houston A-List Poll, the museum has accrued a lot of praise.

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.

At one of the newer museum exhibits, kids are invited to enlist in the Special Elite Crime Resolution and Espionage Team (aka S.E.C.R.E.T.) to crack codes, uncover clues, and outsmart villains. S.E.C.R.E.T. is the Children’s Museum of Houston’s all-new interactive spy experience. This revolutionary experience is designed to take a child’s museum visit to the next level. Kids report to duty and are assigned to go on secret missions throughout the museum. Using state-of-the-art technology, agents gear up to solve puzzles, discover hidden agendas, and thwart the villains’ schemes.
