Amazing experience. There was something for everyone. We spent 4 hours just looking at all of the artifacts. The only reason we left was to eat!

Used Google/Viator to purchase tickets to go to Houston Museum of Natural Science last weekend. Process was easy and allowed us to bypass the long admission line by using the members/corporate line. We spent the most time seeing the phenomenal fossil collection. Truly world class!

Thank you for greatly reducing the entrance fee. The museum was incredible. The four two grandchildren, ages 12 and 9 of us spent 6 hours there. The only unpleasant experience was lunch at McDonald's....the only place to buy food in the museum. Thank you, S L

The museum is wonderful: excellent artifacts in the areas of Prehistoric animals, past civilizations and geology. There was some other areas of the museum that this ticket did not allow us entrance to so make sure that you understand the additional entrance fees and make your selection before going to the ticket counter. We went back to get another ticket for the Planetarium. The transportation to the Museum district was very easy from downtown using the train, very affordable.

The Houston Museum of Natural Science is an amazing place to visit. We took 2 grandchildren, aged 6 and 8. We spent several hours there. Using Viator was great! There were no delays and we surely did save money! But, be prepared to walk a little ways for parking. Due to parking being either expensive or a good ways to walk, we ate inside the museum. The only place we found was a McDonald's. You have to be prepared to wait in line a while and have to keep an eye out for a place to sit and eat. But, hey, it's only 1 meal. No biggie. Happy family memory made.

LOVED this place, the deal does save money. Be sure to pack a lunch so you can eat in the park area. The food is limited to McDonald's on the inside of the museum and a few places within a 15 minute walk.

I purchased two tickets and all in all the place was cool but there were two places inside museum that you needed to have extra tickets to get in and i found that kind of cheesy. i wish you could go in the entire place with your tickets or at least i wish i was told my tickets didnt get me into the places i wanted to go. the dinosaurs were the only cool part.
