  • This is a great museum and the omni theater is awesome. All the exhibits are very fun and clean and well designed. You could easily spend a whole day and not see everything. Getting the right membership is the best option if only to at least get a discount to the movies and the shop. They have a lot of cool gifts at the museum shop.

  • My kids ages 7 & 9 loved this place and did not want to leave. The interaction e exhibits had them engrossed and playing for hours on a recent 20 degree day. The South Pole exhibit upstairs was fascinating to adults and children alike. This museum offers more of a hands-on experience than the Perot Museum in Dallas in my opinion.

  • Our granddaughter had a a blast at the Children's museum. When it came time to leave, I had to pry her little hands from the shopping cart. We used to go quite often when our kids were young, but it started to get uninteresting because nothing changed. This was our first time back in probably 15 years. Very glad to see all the improvements. I can't wait until she's old enough to help me build some circuits in the energy exhibit.

  • I went to High School in Fort Worth and loved the Museum of Science and History. I spent hours there and especially loved the medical exhibits. I moved away after college. Last week (2018) I took my grandkids there. I was dismayed that all my favorite exhibits were gone. Instead, the museum is essentially a children's museum now. Great for younger kids, but not for older kids or adults. Except for one travelling exhibit, there is little interest for adults ( the Antarctica exhibit was great!). So...the good is that if you have kids under 10, that is the target. But there is not much for older kids or adults.

  • This museum was pretty fun. I took my 1 year old baby and he really loved the gallery for toddlers, they had a mini grocery store and a mini hospital! I loved that they also had a nursing room.
