What is the age limit for the museum?
Our exhibits were designed for ages 0-13, but we’ve found that most teenagers and adults have fun in the museum as well! The only exhibit with an age limit is the Circus Tots area, meant to be a safe space for play for infants and toddlers up to 4 years of age.
What is the admission price? Do parents have to pay?
Admission is $7.50 per person, and visitors 23 months of age or younger are free. CDM is a place for family learning experiences, so parents and caregivers are expected to interact with the exhibits with their children. Anyone entering the facility will be charged for admission.
Are memberships or season passes available?
Keep the fun going all year long with a CDM membership! Find out about the different levels and perks here.
What is there to do at the museum?
In addition to our new state-of-the-art exhibits for all ages, we are proud to offer daily programs at 11am and 2pm from Tuesday-Saturday. From quick science demonstrations to collaborative art projects, program content changes every day and is sure to spark creativity in your child.
Is food available at the museum? Can I bring outside food or drinks?
While we offer a selection of snacks and drinks at Penni’s Cafe for children and adults, we understand that some families prefer to bring their own food and drinks to the museum. Outside food and drinks may be consumed in Penni’s Café, but none should be taken into the exhibit halls, with the exception of bottled water.
Is the museum accessible for handicapped individuals?
Yes – the parking lot, welcome center, and both exhibit halls are accessible.
Does my Texas Zoo/Houston Children’s Museum/other museum membership get me in to CDM for free?
Members of other Association of Children’s Museums institutions receive a 50% discount on admission, but no other memberships or season passes are reciprocal to CDM. ACM reciprocal institutions can be found here.
Is the museum hiring?
We do not have any posted job openings, but are hiring extra help as the need arises. Please send your resume to Selena Milstead, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
