Children's Museum of Houston

Voted America's Number 1 Children's Museum by Parent's Magazine and Winner of Nickelodeon Parents Picks for Best Museum in Houston (plus several more accolades not mentioned), the Children's Museum of Houston is an absolute must-visit for any families or groups of younger students. This hands-on, highly educational, and highly popular Houston resident museum serves just over 1 million visitors a year, Houston holding one of the largest child populations in the United States.

A true 'playground for your mind', the gallery offers 14 different galleries, classroom curriculum programs, group activities, and regular special educational events and festivals.
