museum. Your little ones can start at Tot Spot and move on to other hands-on exhibits. You can use the handy guide “Beyond Tot Spot” to help the family transition to the various level activities and themed exhibits. A week of “Mini Wonders” focuses on Pre-K science involving solids and liquids, with discovery and problem-solving fun. Prior to your visit, check the museum schedule since happenings in the Kidtropolis gallery, including the Alexander Art Academy and Science Station, change weekly.

We love the children's museum! So many things to explore. The tot-spot is great if you have children under 3 years old.

Parents' magazine ranked The Children's Museum of Houston as the nation's No. 1 children’s museum.

What to Do
Here kids can build robots, race boats, use a make-believe debit card to buy groceries, or take a wet, wild adventure into FlowWorks. There are also plenty of safe, interactive things to do for kids under two.
Kids can test-drive 24 different jobs such as becoming mayor or anchoring the news. If you have kids, this is one museum you have to add to your list of things to do while you're in Houston.

I've come to this museum since my childhood, and I simply love it here. Now that I have children, they love it here as well. When we think of a family outing, we think of The Children's Museum first. I love what they have done to the place over the years, as I feel that it has grown leaps and bounds through the years. I love the career area of the museum the best. The Chase bank, the newsroom, and the Niko Niko's is where we spend most of our time when we visit. Thursdays are free here, but arrive early to avoid the crowds on that particular day. The outside play area is is very engaging, and kids can play there for long periods of time.

I grew up going to this museum, so it is near and dear to my heart. Now that I have nieces and nephews, I've realized that it can be quite fun for adults as well! It's always great to learn new things, and the Children's Museum of Houston has so many different interactive things to do and ways to learn.
