Have you missed us?  We’ve missed you, too!  Children’s Museum Houston is counting down the days until the school year is over and your mind can come out to play! The Museum will reopen on Tuesday, June 8, with “Fun Summer Vibes” - a “tropi-cool” paradise destination for families to chill out and switch to vacay mode.  Museum Members will be invited to attend Members Preview Day from June 3 to 5 and Memberships are now available for purchase.  Online ticket sales will be announced soon. You’ve been waiting a whole year for this.  Now is the time to celebrate summer!


There’s something new to do and celebrate every day of Summer at America’s No. 1 children’s museum – Houston’s ultimate family destination!  Get away and soak in the fun during the Museum’s splish-splashing, flip-flopping “Fun Summer Vibes.”  Set sail on a voyage of discovery filled with exciting, non-stop adventures every day, all day long!

Embark on a daily escapade filled with thrills, interactive activities, live demonstrations, and performances.  Our exhilarating galleries are filled to the brim with exhilarating explorations, including the all-new Sights Unseen exhibit, which immerses you in color, darkness, and light and looks into the mysterious and unseen world around you.  The all-new RoboSurgery interactive in Invention Convention relies on your curiosity and tinkering to identify what’s wrong with the robot!  And the brand-new Ball Run in Invention Convention invites you to explore gravity, momentum and friction while building a fast ball course.  Plus, unleash your imagination and make a big splash at our outdoor exhibit, FlowWorks, while connecting with nature in EcoStation.


The Museum will be open from Tuesday through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Free Family Night Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.)  Don’t forget to book you visit in advance as the Museum will be operating at a limited capacity.  Advance tickets will be available for sale in early May.
