Many of the areas of interest relied on outdated tech, touch screen tech or photo technology that is readily available on an app. The other areas were either too simple to be interesting or boring. When compared with the awe inspiring content of the museum of science this is a real dud.

My children have always loved visiting this museum. Located so close to the others so make time to scoot on over there. Very nice.

At first we thought what's a 'Health Museum'. Turns out it's fun. Very interactive, nice exhibits for the kids and good learning opportunities. It's small so you don't need a ton of time to visit.

I really didn't think I would like it so much. I played brain games and got to learn about the human body in new and creative ways. Great for kids, awesome for adults!

The first time I visited I was six and could remember being overwhelmed by how awesome all the exhibits were. Coming back with my younger sister and after the museum being revamped for better quality, I was disappointed. Maybe it was being older and more cynical, or maybe the museum had taken a turn for the worse. It is educational... More

Our entire family went and we had so much fun. Not only did we all have fun we all learned so much! I also left my iPad in the screaming booth. My iPad was turned in to the information center. How wonderful is that! Everyone is super nice here!

I visited The Health Museum with a group of seniors and we all agreed we learned a lot and made discoveries! The drawback was the large group of young campers on a field trip....and the mixture of generations proved to be interesting! The 12 foot tall beating heart, 10 foot tall walk-through brain, and the DeBakey Cell Lab were highlights.... More

Many of the exhibits were simply not working. The person at the front desk said there was some renovating going on (no evidence of same in the bldg) and said she would try to get someone "from upstairs" to come down to explain the problems. I just wanted to have the exhibits function or be explained. A depressing array of... More

The Health Museum is a place to go and do interactive learning with your children. The Health Museum is a place to most people do not thinking about visiting but once they visit they return as the exhibits are so interesting. The environment at the Health Museum allows investigation into the who, what, where, when and how of You which... More
