  • Museum dedicated to educational, playful and interactive activities. Although it is suitable for children up to 12 years, the smallest advantage. There are indoor and outdoor activities (wet area), in the heat seems to be fun because they play with water. We went on a Tuesday and the Museum was full of children who were in school excursions. In February the weather was not good for outdoor activities.

  • This is an absolute find. The children were totally into the exhibits and the activities. We will keep visiting this place over and over again.  more »

  • The children’s museum is best suited for kids who are old enough to be showing an interest in science. There are lots of choices of science based exhibits like building your own air powered rocket or understanding how different arrangements of pulleys can make a load harder to lift. That said, this is a great place for spending time with your kids getting them interested in science. We went during the week after Christmas and while our younger kids (4 and 5) enjoyed it, it was really too crowded for me to teach them anything. I will go back when it is less crowded.
  • Visited on December 26, 2017, a rainy Tuesday after Christmas, and could not be happier with the choice. Our 2-y.o. daughter loved the toddler area very much. We expect to come back many times in the future as she grows. The museum had many different areas appropriate for different age groups. Overall, the facility is well thought-out and cleanly-kept. This review might technically be considered paid, since we got an unexpected discount by the admission staff. If we lived in Houston, we would certainly consider getting family membership here.
  • Beautiful place with all kinds of different centres to engage kids of all ages. My 22 month old and myself along with my friend and her kids equally enjoyed the adult like things in Kidtropolis. The Tiny tots space kept my 22 month old and my friend’s 21 month old occupied for almost two hours. There was a wide variety of age specific spaces and toys. Beautiful place! I think you can enjoy it best when you can visit on many different days rather than a single day. A good place for kids to keep themselves occupied.
  • We hosted our Holiday Party at this location. Needless to say it was a great hit for both adults and kids. The kids were extremely happy to be able to use the new wing in a more relaxed environment than during normal hours. The staff was extremely accommodating and Aaron was amazing at walking us through everything!!
  • We go here about once every other month. The kids enjoy visiting the children's museum and have tons of fun. We would recommend taking your kids here for fun and learning under one roof. Only thing that don't make it 5 star is that it doesn't change much so the kids enjoy it but not for very long if we go more often.
