This is a great museum. We enjoyed it, but I feel like children ages 12 and under would LOVE it. This would be a great value for a family visiting Waco on a hot day.

Very disappointing given the beautiful building and campus grounds. We should have been warned by the fact that literally everyone else entering the museum but us had small kids. Make no mistake that easily 75% of the museum is strictly for kids - including the...More

Plenty for the kids, but big and interesting enough for the professor in anyone. Lots of hands-on. Always has a special traveling exhibit also.

This is a small, but nice museum with lots to interest children of many ages. There are usually some special exhibits too. Many permanent exhibits focus on Texas.

5-10 bucks per person... Also check into the family membership. Possibly a cheaper solution if you think you will visit more than once.
