This location is much smaller than the Houston Museum of National Science, but the museum still offers quality sites that everyone should enjoy. Families with young children will certainly love this and this location has several hands on exhibits. They will particularly love the fossil and space sections. Also, there is a gift shop that offers a wide variety of gifts from plushes to crystals for sell.
This was my first time at any of the Houston Museum of National Science locations and I thought the museum was superb and I had no problem maneuvering. Beware the museum is a bit pricy and is about the same cost as the original location in the Museum District.
The exhibit I enjoyed the most was the exotic toads and tree frog sections. These animals were very colorful, particularly the South American tree frogs. They were smaller than I imagined, but very beautiful.
Other areas worth visiting is the asteroid exhibits and the fossil displays. The selection is quite small, but these are high quality exhibits.
The accessibility for this museum is quite excellent and would be perfect if it wasn’t for the heavy double doors. Fortunately, I had someone open the door for me. Just be aware of this when you plan your visit.
Inside was very accessible and I had no issue accessing the exhibits. There are accessible bathrooms on the ground floor near the gift shop and an elevator that reaches the second floor exhibits.
The gift shop is accessible and most chair users shouldn’t have a problem accessing or viewing most items.
Overall, the museum is high quality and definitely worth a visit despite being significantly smaller than its original location. This museum will certainly satisfy most people and provides a great convenience for most families.
