Not a repeater

We loved the two attractions that we went to the Pompii and the Body Move and would have liked to spend more time and see some of the others but being on a fixed income the cost was way too prohibitive. I guess this is not meant for lower income families to attend

Taking my three-year-old grandson and being excited to see all the exhibits thank you so much. We will be taking him back again because he loves dinosaurs and it was very amusing and historical to say thank you God bless

So many things to see, and kid friendly!

Although different exhibits are charged separately from the main part of the museum, overall it is a really neat museum so many different types of things to see. All the way from dinosaurs, wildlife animals, things of Texas, shells, rocks and gems. There is not enough time in a day to see all of it and truly enjoy it. It also is kid friendly which is a major plus!

Nice but costly!

I Love Museums!! However, it gets pretty costly when you are required to pay for each "special" exhibit! I do not mind paying my fair share of things, but when you are so limited to access based on admission prices, and exhibit closures without warning on the website there can be disappointment.

Dinosaurs great for the kids also first chance for my 5 year old grandkids to see clearly exhibit of how humans evolved . Don't miss the butterfly exhibit! Getting tickets through viator saved $48 for 4 of us. We did have to get entry tickets once there but were shown to the members short line and were treated great

Egypt exhibit under construction

Enjoyed the museum, my only issue was that Egypt was under construction and I was unaware of it until I had already purchased tickets on line and that was my main reason for going and taking my mother who was visiting from New York

We paid to see Pompeii exhibit but it was closed for remodeling or some work, when we ask to see another one next to it the Egypt one they didn’t let us see. Very disappointed. Selling a part of a museum that was not available.
