Our Review: The Children’s Museum of Houston was named “America’s No. 1 Best Children’s Museum” by Parents magazine, voted Nickelodeon Parents’ Picks “Best Museum in Houston”, selected as Click2Houston‘s Best “Best Museum 2010” and is a Citysearch.com 5-star children’s museum. There are more than 14 exhibits and a very full calendar of events. So what’s not to love about this museum?
Well, for us, it’s the crowd. This museum is very very popular. You should definitely visit, but you should have a well defined plan. According to the staff, the slowest times are when school is in session, first thing in the morning or around 2:00 (when parents head out to pick up the school aged children). If you want to go over the summer, Sunday at opening is the slowest. If you plan to go at other times, just be sure to have a plan for the items you want to see, and be flexible.
