There were many and varied things to learn about at the Witte Museum. The kiddos loved the hands on science-themed five level HEB Treehouse (electricity creation, water play, instruments, etc), the dinosaur skeleton, the fossils, checking out the Native American artifacts, REALLY liked the mummy and skeleton in burial hole, and enjoyed checking out the pioneer home and utility shed. We had the most fun in the Amazon exhibit (their temporary exhibit at the time of this review, there through Sept 2011, an extra $3/person).   There is a tank of piranhas with a video of them being fed to watch (we were told a zookeeper comes to feed them without notice, usually close to closing time). There are various touch-and...

Wow... I'm not even sure what to say. There was nothing spectacular about this museum, and I'm not sure I found anything mildly educational.

During that time parking can be difficult to find so show u...

Such a Kill Joy...for adults NO...I mean its great for kids....but to a certain age, I think for the cost to get in it should provide more. It should be more of a Children's Museum to which there is one downtown and I will say this one is way better then the one downtown. Noted as the Premiere Museum I would say its weee bit more optimistic. But That Tree house.. I give it a three because if I give it a two then that means I lied in not enjoying the Tree House.... I LOVE the Tree House, if they had a seperate entrance just for the Tree House well this review would be at a 4 but because its NOOOOOOOOOOT...Its a three. Though..I will say I had my son's Seventh Suprise Birthday Party (four years ago)  here and ...

Went for the dinosaur exhibit and stayed for some of the other historic exhibits... its a nice little museum! We went with friends and co-workers.. one who was afraid of the animatronic dinosaurs.. so that alone was hilarious... but it was a great exhibit... nicely done and the kids seemed to love it! Our hous...
