If you have never taken your kids to this TRUE TREASURE, you MUST add this to your list of places to visit in Houston.
Luckily, Lili and Seri had previously been and advised that we arrive at least 30 minutes before the museum opened. Thankfully, we listened because there was already a line to get it the door.
However, they even had the wait covered. There was a full show before we even entered the museum! Complete with juggling, a balancing act and very clever tricks. And before we knew it, the doors were opening!
Once inside, a whole world of adventure awaits you!
From a three story vertical maze to a wire ropes course, we were easily swept up in the amazement that is the Houston Children’s Museum.
We were able to use our brains in the Invention Connection where you build Lego cars and race them down tracks, make rockets and send then launching, and invent creations that will fly in the wind tunnel. It was so cool.
You can learn how to juggle, pull a table cloth without spilling the plates, and defy gravity in the “KLUTZ” section.
We made our way outdoors (with still so much to explore inside) and found a puppet show, scavenger hunt, flower garden, turtles, jungle gym, and….
An ENORMOUS water feature to sail boats, create water tunnels, and get a little wet. It is simply a site to see.
The Children’s Houston Museum also has specials that are INCLUDED in admission. We got lucky with Jumbo hamster ball races and trampoline jumps! But… I over heard them talking “Pie Day” yes, you put on suites have enjoy an actual pie fight. Amazing.
Back indoors, we spent another few hours finding our way through an electricity room where their is more cool stuff, pulley chairs, flying balls, super heroes, and a whole floor made for sticky ball tag!
We even found a whole toddler town for Aiden only, they have booties for the parents and no children over 36 months allowed. It was really special for him.
Seriously, we could go on for hours about Kidtropolis, face painting (DIY), crafts, S.E.C.R.E.T. Spy Game and much MUCH more! We literally spent 6 hours there and could have spent a couple more.
We could not recommend the Children’s Houston Museum more!
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Comfy clothes & shoes (you will spend hours here exploring)
- Water & snacks (However they do have a small cafe with delicious food)
- Get there earlier than opening to find a parking spot & your place in line
- If you live in Houston, definitely get a membership!
GO GO GO!
All our love,
