I guess I was expecting a bit more of an adult experence and what I found was something pretty basic with a good many hands on exhibits.

Our grandsons aged 6 and 8 were desperate to go and we're had a great time. Inexpensive as far as museums go and we paid the extra $5 each to do three science experiments which are boys could do. Definitely recommend this.

Younger kids will love this place and adults will learn too but really geared well for children. Nice to pair this with a trip to the zoo.

This is a really wonderful museum with a lot of state of the art exhibits. The beating heart is very cool. Lots of easy to follow, interactive and educational exhibits. The gift shop also has lots of unique items!

It is not very often that I can find something that could be appealing to our group because of the difference of ages but... More

What fun. Especially for kids and adults who don't know much about science. It has only one floor but most is interactive. Exhibits include the five senses, how the brain works, a simulated heart attack, mind teaser puzzles and, best of all, the Debakey Cell Lab. For $3 visitors dress in lab coat and goggles, then follow computer directions to... More

Many of the areas of interest relied on outdated tech, touch screen tech or photo technology that is readily available on an app. The other areas were either too simple to be interesting or boring. When compared with the awe inspiring content of the museum of science this is a real dud.

My children have always loved visiting this museum. Located so close to the others so make time to scoot on over there. Very nice.

At first we thought what's a 'Health Museum'. Turns out it's fun. Very interactive, nice exhibits for the kids and good learning opportunities. It's small so you don't need a ton of time to visit. Plan it as a part of another outing in the Museum district or as a stand alone 1/2 day item. It is often not overly... More
