The Children's Museum of Houston, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Express Children's Theater, Houston Symphony's Weatherford Family Concerts and the Houston Zoo are few family-friendly attractions in Houston, Texas. The city is also home to several family-friendly restaurants, including the family-run Pizaro's Pizza Napoletana and Bernie's Burger Bus.
The Children's Museum of Houston offers bilingual interactive exhibits in science, history, the arts, culture and human development. Exhibits serve both education and play, such as the make-believe, child-run Kidtropolis, USA, where kids can start businesses, broadcast the news and govern their fellow citizens. Infants and toddlers enjoy age-appropriate activities in the museum's Tot Spot.
As its names implies, the Houston Museum of Natural Science has a narrower topical offering, but also has a 3D IMAX Theater, a butterfly exhibit, a huge palaeontology hall, a planetarium and numerous other science-themed exhibits. For live, kid-friendly plays or musical performances, families can visit Houston's Express Children's Theater or the Houston Symphony. The symphony's Weatherford Family Concerts series specifically targets family audiences.
A family looking for outdoor activities can pay a visit to the Houston Zoo. In addition to its regular exhibits, the zoo has a children's zoo, aquarium and a Natural Encounters section where kids can have close-up encounters with different animals.
