Top Houston Attractions for Kids

If you have kids and are planning to visit Texas, then you might want to keep in mind some of these Houston attractions for kids, which are fun and educational attractions that your children are sure to love. The first on our list, and should be first on anyone’s list who is visiting Houston is the Museum District. This tops our list of Houston attractions for kids because of the educational value, but the district isn’t just a museum – it’s a collection of some of the best in the country, include the Museum of Fine Arts, Holocaust Museum, and the McGovern Health Museum with a 4D theater.

Of course many people get excited when they think of Houston, because it houses the NASA Program, and the NASA astronaut corps, or Space Camp in other words. The Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is a huge 1,620 acre facility that has over 100 different places to visit including a zero gravity simulation, which is found in no other Houston attractions, and is a once in a lifetime experience. Also, this galactic addition to our Houston attractions for kids has a Living in Space Exhibit, and the ability to observe a virtual rocket launch at the Blast Off Theater.

While visiting the Houston attraction the Space Center and the Museum is certainly fascinating and educational, you must make time for fun, and the Kemah Boardwalk offers just that, with a full service entertainment and amusement park. You can eat at Landry’s Seafood House, visit the Cadillac Bar and of course, ride the rides with standard Ferris Wheel, Train Ride and a Carousel. This is one of the most fun of all Houston attractions for kids, and should not be missed, as this is the largest amusement park since the closing of Six Flags Astroworld.
