    Excellent museum for kids and adults. Toured as a multi-generational family group. Egypt and Gold exhibit was a highlight, as well as the ongoing butterfly exhibit/room.

    Minute Maid Park is a great place to watch the baseball! Good food, plenty of scope and a great team store.

    Not Covid safe though - huge crowds and no social distancing.

    We've been MFAH museum members for years and always enjoy their rotating exhibits. For this visit we saw Incomparable Impressionism and the M.C. Escher exhibit. Both were excellent. Enjoyed seeing all the Monet and Renoir paintings full of beautiful gardens, rosy-cheeked children, people dancing, and just enjoying life in general. M.C. Escher's art by contrast was mathematical, measured, brooding, and full of symmetry. Nice to see such variety. Museum signage could be improved a little bit. Adding temporary signs directing guests toward the exhibits would be really helpful. The museum has grown so much and is now spread across three large buildings. Parking is available for a fee in the MFAH parking garage. There's also a good indoor/outdoor cafe where you can enjoy lunch and a pretty sculpture garden across from the museum. This is a wonderful place to spend the day.

    My family and I love this museum. We have a great time every time we go (about twice a year thanks to school trips), and we have a great time. Lots to do and interact with. My youngest is starting to grow out of the age most kids want to be here, which is sad. But still, it's a great time for the family.

    Had a very enjoyable day at Houston Zoo with family and friends. Plenty for the children to do and see. They fed the giraffes and went on the carousel. A nice day out for young and old.

    The restaurants get very busy but the coffee shop not so. Coffee (latte) was good and not exorbitant. The best drink though is the frozen Stargazer. Loved it!
    Staff were very friendly.

    This mall has everything you need from lower price point stores to your luxury brands! It is also covered parking, so it is a bonus for me, especially if it is raining. Nordstrom- yellow garage has the best parking. Lately Galleria has added more experiences to their already awesome ice skating rink! They have added TFTI experience which is a selfie museum and also an escape room. The food choices are phenomenal and also range in prices from Canes, chick-fila- to Shake Shack to Nobu, joey uptown, fig and olive, All inside or walking distance from the mall. With Houston being so big, Galleria is a one stop shop that you can spend hours. They also have the waterwall which is walking distance!

    This is a nice environment and you do see butterflies, not as many as you would expect to, but we did see some unique ones.

    Had a great time at the Toyota Center for spurs-rockets game. It was pretty full because rivalry game but east entrance and we didn’t have to go up any escalators. The arena food was expensive but chicken tenders were good and fresh. The ambiance and arena shows were great and the arena was more modern that what we have in OKC.

    Had an unbelievable time visiting Houston’s football stadium for the Rodeo. Complex is texas-sized and has some unbelievable amenities as well as ample spacing despite it being nearly sold out for Gwen Stefani concert. The rides outside and Astrodome provided a nice setting for photos.

    We attended Earth Day and learned about birds and really enjoyed the Native American participation. It is nice to have activities and a clean area.

    Admit it, you have to be curious to visit this museum. It is not morbid at all. Very informative as to all aspects of the funeral business.

    Pleasant way to sepnd a few hours.
    Buy your ticket at the top and then walk or drive down to the Bayou. Cross the very bouncy, swinging wooden bridge for the house and Gardens.
    You get to see most of the house (no kitchen or bathrooms) and in comparison to similar houses in Europe you get to really go into each room, not just stand in the door. Nice gardens, green but not much flowers yet (Apr). Still really nice.
    Peaceful and quiet.

    This is not only a great space, its size allows you to visit the entire museum in one non-fatiguing trip. And the eclectic collection is excellent! A very very good museum. And it's free!
