Open Their Minds
When a group of parents from Houston decided they wanted to find a way to enhance the development of their community’s children in a fun and interesting way, they knew they were investing in more than simply the education of their youth but the future as well. Make a reservation at any of the hotels near the Houston Children’s Museum and you, and your family, can find out just how well they succeeded.
What started as a humble location in a gallery in the University of Houston quickly moved to an 11,000-square-foot building of its own to accommodate its growing popularity. But by 1992, less than decade from its original grand opening, the museum was moved again to its current location with enough room to hold 350,000 annual visitors and an expansion was added in 2009 to double that capacity.
With numbers like that, you can’t help but wonder what makes the museum so attractive and exciting. It could be the colorful, unique, and almost childlike design by Robert Venturi. It draws the eye and easily gains the attention of the young and old alike. But it’s what’s inside that really seals the deal. To date, there are 18 exhibits between the permanent and seasonal and each is more wonderful than the next. Take your youngest to the Tot*Spot for skill-building and wonder-inducing exhibits perfect for children from birth to 35 months. Let them problem solve all on their own in the Think Tank or learn how the real world works at the How Does It Work exhibit.
