This museum is great! (In my opinion the best in Houston) It is great for kids, and there are lots of fun and informative exhibits, and occasionally special exhibits which are always fun! I went to their Pompeii exhibit awhile ago and was impressed! We learn something new every time we go there. They have an amazing gift shop with lots of fun and unique items, and constantly have new items. Even if you don't buy anything it is just fun to wander. Their birthday parties are always fun, but they don't always respond when you are planning one with them. Even if you just go for the regular exhibits you are bound to have a good time and learn something new! Overall if you are looking for a fun place to go in Houston this is a great option.
