    For discounted admission, check Groupon before going to the museum, or present your Bank of America credit card for free adult admission for the cardholder(s).

    If you have small kids, go straight to the Tot Spot on the second floor. Perfect for toddlers!

    Very cool place to visit! Don't go during free admission night, way too many kids around to be able to experience what the museum has to offer

    A little over priced, but there is tons of activities for the kids to do. It could be very educational experience, but my kids mostly ran around like hooligans, rather than trying to learn anything.

    My son and I can build stuff at Invention Convention all day. The best family entertainment value in Houston. There is so much here you can't do it all in one visit.

    Let your kid use a pretend debit card from an ATM machine to buy groceries and dine out at this museum. He’ll learn about money and have fun doing it!

    If you have a little one (birth to 36 Months) try the Tot Spot upstairs. I have been talking to many people who didn't even know it was there. My 18 month old LOVES it!!
