Do your kids love dinosaurs? Museums? Waterslides? Well, head to Houston for exciting excursions and discover why we motivate so many kids to become astronauts, ballerinas and the President of the United States! And don’t forget, Houston is a hop, skip and a jump from Galveston Island, which offers families plenty of options for visiting the beach, museums and sightseeing for ships! Kids of all ages will find something entertaining about Houston, so let’s get started!
Museums are plentiful in Houston with eight popular attractions available to anyone interested in fine arts, space and aircrafts, Texas history and war ships. At the top of the list is the Children’s Museum of Houston, which is rated the second best children’s museum in the United States. Take your aspiring astronaut to the Johnson Space Center to witness an actual working facility. If a picnic in a park is on your list, visit Hermann Park for a variety of outdoor activities. International exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts are available throughout the year and significant contributions to world history are on display during specific months. Regardless of when you can visit, you and your family are sure to enjoy the scenery.
If dinosaurs are a “must see,” don’t be afraid to take a trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Located in the heart of the Museum District, families can coordinate a complete day of visiting museums, shopping and eating at kid-friendly restaurants.
