Its underwhelming for adults. But the preteens around us seemed to love it! It is nice the see that it’s free on Thursday afternoons.

I've wanted to come to this museum since moving to Houston and finally had a chance to go for an event. It's a great venue to host an event and the exhibits are pretty cool. I'll certainly have to go again.

My kids are 2 and 5. My oldest kid had a good time here, but the youngest one did not have much to do. Museum personnel was friendly and helpful.

It’s a little museum, but you enjoy it! I visited on a Thursday because some days at certain hours, some museums have a free entrance! I enjoyed the activities, visiting this museum won’t take you so long.

Excellent family destination that is full of actively engaging interactions and mind-opening encounters. From the DeBakey Cell Lab, which I strongly recommend to both children of all ages and adults of all ages, the Health Museum is a treasure trove of self-exploration and need-to-know hands-on...More

Great experience at The Health Museum on Saturday! I attended with a group and we started in the DeBakey Cell Laboratory. We broke into small groups of 2-3 people and did real experiments like separating actual DNA strands from cells, identifying red and white blood...More

There are 11 organ systems in the human body and this museum barely even brushes over any of them... and half of the stuff in there doesn't even work. There really is so much lost potential here. I know museums aren't a huge business, but...More

This museum is a basic, interactive museum intended for younger people. I am also a medical geek but found it fun and enjoyable. But, if you do not like kids, or basic displays, this may not be the place for you.
