Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.

  • AMAZING! STEM science and math related activities with explanations. Fantastic way for children to learn about and love science and math while having fun. Staff was attentive and kind. Very well organized and clean. Could easily spend an entire day there between indoor exploration, outdoor water area and storytime. Cannot bring food in but could sit outside and eat if you really wanted or purchase food there. Well done Houston!
  • My kids LOVE coming here they never want to leave we spend over 5 overs every time we go. Something for everyone to do. I been coming here for 8 years and now my 1 year old enjoys coming here they have a Awesome toddler area upstairs. They sell ice cream and popcorn outside for only 1 dollar. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š The membership is worth getting
  • My kids love it here! There as so many things for them to do and other kids for them to play with. I love all of the options you have no matter the age group. My kids favorite part was getting to build contraptions and try them out while we were there. Definitely going back as much as we can!
  • My family and I visited from out of town and the experience was wonderful! We will definitely be stopping by again. So many wonderful activities for all ages, and the staff is wonderful and very friendly. If you haven't stopped by to visit it is a must when in the area.
  • We had a GREAT time here with a 5 and 7 year old. There is more than you can likely accomplish in a day, so target what you want to see. The outside area is great, but plan on kids getting wet. The range of appropriate activity goes much older than many children's museums- kids into their early teens will likely find something that they enjoy. The only complaint is cost (and a pretty inferior food court), but it's worth it! Go and make a day of it.
