There were many school groups there when we went so it was packed. The children's museum in Dallas sells you a ticket to come at a certain time to keep it from being too crowded. Houston should probably do that. They need more activities for ages 4 and under. Still a fun place for children to play and learn.

I think I have just as much fun as my son, when we visit here. On Thursday evenings from 5 to 8 pm, the Museum hosts Free Family Nights. So, yes, just as you expected it will be very crowded. if you frequent here it is ok. If you actually want to get a chance to explore and learn a... More

I took my 10 year old daughter and my 6 year old granddaughter along with my sister who helped me with them. The place was very educational and fun for all. The food was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have taken two sets of grand kids here and they were not disappointed. Grand daughter did complain of being shoved around by the free entry "underprivileged" i believed id was on Tuesdays. I would check with them and avoid that "free day" if possible. Many things to explore, crafts, problem solving and creative inspirations.

This is a great activity for kids. It can be very crowded on holidays and when kids are off from school.

If you are looking for something fun AND educational for the kids, this is a must visit! I went with my 5 year old, my 8 year old niece, and my sister. We all had a great time! I'd definitely go again!!!

My grandson loves going to the Children's Museum of Houston whenever he comes for a visit. His favorite part is getting to make paper rockets and watching them fly! My only complaint is the number of unsupervised kids running around and who have knocked him down when we took him to the lower level to climb the poles. He was... More

First time here. Met my brothers family, which consists of 3 kids under 6. Loved that so much was interactive. Bright, inviting. The kidopolis is like something I've never seen and don't have at my children's museum where I live. So detailed. If you don't know, it's like a little town -- grocery store, news station, vet, restaurant, ambulance. They... More
