  • Enjoyed a couple of hours here with my family. A nice museum to explore and beat the heat for a while. The staff are very polite and courteous. This place is great for the smaller kids, lots of fun things to explore. A beautiful mineral exhibit with the most surreal geode that I've ever seen, it truly looked alien in nature. A network of geode pilliars.
  • Family Membership with HMNS organization. I have two kiddos preschool & elementary. Perfect size for little ones! Dinosaurs, Earth science, Microscopes, special exhibits, a little bit of everything! We love the indoor Dino dig pit, the small outdoor butterfly garden, and have attended school friends' birthday parties at this location! Fun special events throughout the year too. I enjoyed the museum so much I've trained to be a volunteer. Love having this resource in Fort Bend!
  • Great science museum for Houston with varying exhibits, planetarium, and big screen theater. Museum does a good job rotating exhibits and keeping things fresh. As with everything in Hermann Park, plan ahead for parking and get there early if you can.
  • Small but so much fun. Educational for the kids and easier for a parent to take kids on their own than the big venue downtown. A great morning out for the family.
  • Great museum. Lots of interactive fun educational activities. Geology is amazing & dinasours
