The Children’s Museum of Houston, founded in 1980 by Houston parents, soon turned into one of Texas most popular attractions.  With his visionary ideas, Robert Venturi designed the museum and welcomed all visitors from all backgrounds.

As time passed, it gained more popularity, and staff members then realized that visitors needed more space. Therefore, administration appropriated funding and constructed a new building wing. Furthermore, the museum’s library expanded tremendously by doubling its size, accommodating both more parents and children..

Welcoming all guests, the museum even had a bilingual community based outreach program that provided not only classrooms, but also laboratories. Older kids tend to enjoy exhibits like “Invention Convention” or even the indoor/outdoor area where they can engage in leaf rubbing and collecting bugs.

“The museum is the ultimate learning experience for my children, and they actually enjoy learning when they come here,” a parent said. Quite appreciative of its activities and events, many parents leave reviews online complimenting the museum and recommending it to many other future visitors.

For awards in 2005, The Children’s Museum of Houston ranked first place in all children’s museums, and in Child magazine, it ranked second place.

Programs and activities, the heart and soul of the museum, makes it so different compared to other children’s museum. Around holidays, the museum showcases many events, entertaining both young and old alike. For example, Christmas this year, the museum will furnish “Pancakes with Santa”, and “Gingerbread house workshop”.

The Children’s Museum provides practical activities, such as youngsters drawing and coloring, which not only helps them learn, but also helps their creativity. The museum also provides dining facilities while visitors tour it, allowing them to sojourn with others all day and enjoy the full experience.

Most visitors describe the museum as “less museum and more play place”, but that makes it more engaging for the kids during their “…learning while having fun”. Visitors also suggest that others should arrive early because many guests make the museum quite busy.
