Museum Of Natural Science - Review

The Museum of Natural Science is a varied and wonderful museum that displays the history of the scientific world in a very beautiful manner. The exhibits are extremely interesting and engaging and the collection is huge.

The exhibits range from Ancient Egypt and African Wildlife to Mineral deposits to Texas wildlife. The chemistry and earth forum exhibits are also quite interesting. The Paleontology section is also certainly worth seeing. Malacology or the shell Science exhibit takes you into the world of mollusks. While the several shells and replicas are interesting the exhibit of giant squids is truly remarkable and not to be missed.

The Museum also usually has numerous rolling temporary exhibits from around the world which add to the experience. The Butterfly center and the Planetarium in the premises are also interesting and not to be missed.

Museum Of Natural Science, Houston Reviews

  • Amazing museum! Very educational! We loved it! There's not a whole lot to hold the interest of my kindergartener, but there was enough visually interesting things, that he enjoyed it. My older kids loved it! We would recommend it to anyone! The only food available for purchase inside is McDonald's, so we packed our lunch and enjoyed the adjacent park with water sculpture. It could definitely take you all day to see every exhibit if you like to read all the info available.

  • I can't say enough about this museum! It has anything you could imagine, and then more. Surprises around every corner. We spent several hours there and still didn't see half of it. Gorgeous gems, wonderful view of the dinosaur exhibit and interesting decor in the Closet of Curiosities. I would love to visit again (and again)! I definitely understand why it's a favorite of the locals. Must see!

  • It's been a few years since I've visited here and I was so impressed! The museum has been renewed and the displays are top notch. I loved the care given in the Texas wildlife area. I remember the old display being the same musty smelling animals but the new area was so enjoyable to look at that I forgot to take any pictures! :) If it's been awhile since you've been, gather the kids and enjoy.

  • This place was incredible. I was there for four hours and only finished one level. The gems exhibit is breath-taking, and the dinosaur displays were detailed and informative. I want to go here many more times, despite the tighter than normal admission fee in my opinion ($25 a person seems like a lot, but you get so much for your money). If you enjoy museums, this may be the best one in Houston.

  • This museum is impressive. They have tons of fun and educational exhibits. This place has so many exhibits that will suit the interests of each family member. Currently, the have a really cool Sherlock Holmes exhibit. This exhibit allows you to look a clues and solve a crime on your own. I had a great time solving the puzzle with my family. The Sherlock Holmes exhibit is one of the many cool traveling exhibits that rotate through the museum. If you haven't been in a while, I would reccomend coming again and seeing some of the new special (traveling) exhibits and re-living the old ones. I had a wonderful time here and I give high praise to this museum!
