Fun and games at the children's museumFlag review
This might not be the biggest, newest children’s museum, but it is still worth a visit for families traveling with small children. Powerball Hall, located to your left as you enter the museum, is a big hit with kids and provides lots of interactive fun. Upstairs, check out the mini-airliner and airport check-in desk (Perfect for traveling families!). On the lowest level, there is a grocery store with shopping carts, registers, and tons of toy food. Compared to other children's museums, I'd rate this one as "average," although my daughter did have a great time.
Tips for Families
If you park in the Mid City/Houston garage or the St. Mary’s garage, bring your ticket stub to the museum desk. They will validate it for one hour of free parking.

The only pain in the butt is the parking since they don't have a private lot. Apparently you can park in certain garages downtown and they will validate your ticket for an hour free. I made the mistake of ...
Sure, the exhibits don't change and it's $7 a person, but the kids LOVE it! They have all kinds of fun, interactive activities for the kids that never get old (at least to the kids). As an adult, you might get bored of the exhibits after an hour of visiting, but this isn't for the adults, it's for the children! They have plenty of things to keep...
This is where you go to become a kid for a day. They have some of the coolest exhibits I have ever seen at children's museums and I have been to plenty of them! The airplane in the middle of the 2nd floor requires us all to strap in for a take off by your very own child. The bubble machine is awesome, surrounding yourself with a bubble has never been more John Travolta. The little marketplace is where my kids had the best time, putting fruit and food in their carts and checking out with the child playing cashier. I think I sat there for at least an hour watching them. They have a real ATM and an exhibit on money "sense". Although it is a little pricey, $7 per person, 2 and up - every 3rd Thursday, the kids c...
