    My son and I can build stuff at Invention Convention all day. The best family entertainment value in Houston. There is so much here you can't do it all in one visit.

    We went on a free night. So wasn't shocked that it was packed. My 17,4& 3 yr old had a blast....ok so did I! Beautifully set up, lots of fun things to do. We ate at the cafe & the food was yummy!

    The kids really liked the secret agent mission for kids of 8 years and above. Bit pricey though at $20

    If you have small kids, go straight to the Tot Spot on the second floor. Perfect for toddlers!

    One of the best children's Museums I've been to! So interactive; even my 18mo had a blast! Don't overlook HEB and the restaurant!!

    A little over priced, but there is tons of activities for the kids to do. It could be very educational experience, but my kids mostly ran around like hooligans, rather than trying to learn anything.

    Outside area in the summer is great. The younger kids room upstairs is wonderful too. Free Thur nights are very crowded.

    Very cool place to visit! Don't go during free admission night, way too many kids around to be able to experience what the museum has to offer

    Awesome museum but on a warm day in May, I felt hypothermic since they keep the temperature so low.

    Let your kid use a pretend debit card from an ATM machine to buy groceries and dine out at this museum. He’ll learn about money and have fun doing it!

    I wish there wasn't such a crowd at five but it's sort of worth it when the babies get to play with other babies.
