The Music Box Theater provides audiences a unique mix of live popular music and original comedy in a relaxes club environment. There are songs you know sung by people you should know and there is something for everyone. Appropriate for all ages.
Went to Music Box's Sunday matinee entitled Broadway in the Box. It would be very challenging to find a better entertainment value in Houston. For $30, I listened to 5 awesome entertainers. Each of them had great energy, and there's a bit of a comedienne in each of them. While I enjoyed every Broadway number they performed (each of them took turns either as a solo, a duo, or all 5 together), my favorite was their 7-minute full performance of Beauty and the Beast. What a hoot...and great music. They performed the entire Beauty and the Beast animated hit in exactly 7 minutes. While they sang excerpts and reenacted segments from each of the popular songs in the animated movie, a countdown clock in the background enabled the audience to track their progress in the 7-minute short version of this delightful play.
While each of the performers is truly amazing, as a fellow native Clevelander, a special shout-out goes to Cay Taylor.
For an additional $10, you can get a 'reserved' ticket, which entitles you to sit around a small table, which can be helpful with the drinks and snacks you may consume during the show (which are reasonably priced). However, the general admission ticket was fine, and due to the quaintness (i.e. smallness) of the theatre, there's not a bad seat in the house.
If you enjoy good music and comedy, do yourself a favor and put Music Box Theatre on your list of things to do when in Houston.

The Nature Discovery Center is home to the Russ Pitman Park and the Henshaw House and located in Houston, TX. The Russ Pitman Park is a lush 4-acre oasis and animal habitat. Visitors can stroll, play, picnic, and explore nature. Other special places to explore in the park include the fountain, shady wetland, herb garden, pocket prairie, playground, and much more! The Center's Discovery Rooms are open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 5:30 pm FREE of charge. Hands-on, interactive exhibits, specimens, live animals to touch and observe, books to browse, and make-and-take crafts will provide you with many fun and memorable learning opportunities.
We went for the monthly birding walk and were not disappointed. Mary Ann is knowledgeable about not only the birds we were interested in, but their habitat and song and the trees and other wildlife on site. This was our third visit and we'll be back.

Next to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the glass-enclosed butterfly habitat includes a simulated rainforest and thousands of colorful butterflies. A dramatic 50-foot waterfall and exotic plants transport visitors.
Unlike some other butterfly centres we've been to around the world this one really measures up in terms of the number of butterflies (and species) per cubic metre. Superb. And the entry area with lots of materials both on butterflies and other insects was also well set out; aimed at children, but educational and entertaining for adults.
The one gripe I would have, and it's a big one, is the process of buying a ticket (which is at the entrance to the Natural History Museum writ large). With 15 ticket windows available only one (yes, one) was open the majority of time we were waiting in the lengthy queue. And to really ramp up the annoyance levels two staff members (including, I suspect, the supervisor) could be seen chatting to each other rather than actually serving the public by getting behind a ticket counter. There was general moaning to be heard along the length of the ever-growing line.
But putting that to one side, once we had our tickets we thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly Centre and would recommend it, particularly to families.

I don't know about you, but I don't like to have my intelligence insulted.
Especially, at such a serious place like the Holocaust Museum.
It is totally ruined by Political Correctness.
On the other hand, other exhibits qualities may be totally selective. I would avoid the HOME exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Rothko at the Menil Collection both feature displays that stretch the definition of art in a negative manner.
The rest of the Museum of Fine Arts is one of my favorite Museums and also the Museum of Natural Science.
I come from NYC so I know of Museums!

Everyone should go at least once in their lifetime to the iconic and historic Houston Rodeo & Livestock Show. Even mid-week in March the grounds were packed with families enjoying the calf-roping, barrel-racing, rodeo clowns, and other competitions as well as the rides and the blissfully air conditioned indoor displays and petting zoo. We couldn't wait to go research the behind-the-scenes details to learn more about what it takes to compete at this level of rodeo. So much pride!

The first municipal art museum in Texas is most well-known for its Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, and also includes Baroque and Renaissance art, African tribal art, a sculpture garden and a teaching wing, where the works of students and top Texas artists are displayed.
Lovely exhibit based on his later work with Pope Paul III. There are several scetches, cartoons, and paintings all from the Farenese collection in Naples. The audio guide was very informative.

This outstanding science museum has a spectacular collection of mineral specimens, a dinosaur skeleton, space-station models, a planetarium, IMAX theater and a six-story butterfly center in which these beautiful creatures land delicately on outstretched arms.
We had City Passes, so our trip included this museum. We aren't typically museum people, but this one was quite interesting. It has several different display areas to keep anyone interested. There is the animal history, human history, geology, artifacts from royalty, dinosaurs, Egypt and a few other sections I can't remember. There is paid parking attached to the museum ($5 or $10 I can't remember). It was worth the visit! We had teens, adults and a senior with us.

Hands-on interactive exhibits in the areas of science and technology, history and culture, health and human development, and the arts.
We travel quite a bit and have hit Children's Museums in a lot of different cities and countries. The "City Museum" in St. Louis is still the best, but Houston's Children's Museum is worth doing. There's plenty of activities for children up to probably early teens. The emphasis on electronics and robots was nice for the older kids.
The Houston City Pass is well worth it, and this is a much better use of a ticket than the Kemah Boardwalk. You'll have time to hit the Aquarium on the same day you visit the Children's Museum, then hit NASA on another day.

*Please note that the main museum building located at 1533 Sul Ross Street is off view through summer 2018. The Cy Twombly Gallery, Byzantine Fresco Chapel, Dan Flavin Installation at Richmond Hall, Menil Menil Bookstore, and Bistro Menil will remain open with regular hours. The Menil will continue to host public programs. Please visit menil.org for more information.* A legacy of the philanthropists John and Dominique de Menil, the Menil Collection opened in 1987. The museum presents regular rotations of artworks from its growing permanent collection, organizes special exhibitions and programs throughout the year, publishes scholarly books, and conducts research. The Menil Collection’s main museum building anchors a parklike 30-acre campus, which also includes the Cy Twombly Gallery, a site-specific Dan Flavin installation, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel—now a venue for long-term installations by contemporary artists—and outdoor sculpture.
On the day we visited we didn't realize the museum is closed for renovation. There are surrounding buildings you can view and the bistro is open, but we hated missing the large collection. Our understanding is that the large building will be closed for a few months.
