Best for:
1) Exploring: learning on the go!
3) Science and Health: learning about science and health through exploration
3) Math: discovering math through special stations and many of the exhibits
4) Language arts: providing opportunities to read, discuss, explore, get material for lapbooks, journaling, essays
5) Geography: learning about countries, cultures as represented through exhibits


Peak age of enjoyment: 0-10 y.o. but older children, youth, adults and grandparents can really have fun

Pros: as much play as you can handle all laid out and ready to go, special interest stations and events, friendly staff, Houston Public Library branch in the museum, free family nights 5-8 p.m. Thursdays, lots of fun across broad range of ages, activities

Cons: it is pretty much always crowded, tough to keep track of children in Power Play area and there are unguarded exits in Power Play, Invention Convention and Cyberchase areas

Cautions: adult supervision important, paid parking only
