TWCM_Summer_Days_2016THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The Woodlands Children’s Museum offers a cool sanctuary for those trying to beat the heat and have some summer-time fun.

Here are a few reasons families should spend time this summer at The Woodlands Children’s Museum:

1. The prices are hard to beat. Daily admission is $6 per person for those 1 year and older. Individuals in active military service and their immediate families are always admitted at no charge to The Woodlands Children’s Museum.

Memberships at the museum offer an even better value. For a family membership of $76, two adults and up to four family members at a time, may visit as often as they like for a year. Grandparents get the same deal for only $66. Additional members of a family are $10 each. The museum also offers ACM Reciprocal memberships for $125, which grants admission for up to six family members and reciprocal admission at ACM member museums nationwide.

2. The museum is right in the neighborhood. Located at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, Suite 280 in The Woodlands, the museum is centrally located for many families on the north side of Houston. The museum is also a quick drive for residents of Kingwood, Humble, Spring, Conroe, Willis and Magnolia.

3. Educational activities abound. Summertime can often mean that children’s minds are less engaged than they are during the stimulating school year. The Woodlands Children’s Museum’s interactive exhibits are designed to spark young minds.

4. The calendar is packed with activities and programs. The museum has a special activity planned for almost every day of the summer. There are magicians, science demonstrations, story times, Lego explorations and more on the schedule. The museum also has a variety of summer workshops for ages 4 to 10 – each offering hands-on activities that foster creative thinking. For a list of courses and the costs to attend the summer programs, visit to view and download a brochure.

5. There’s more time to have more fun. The Woodlands Children’s Museum is open longer hours during the summer – allowing guests to visit seven days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day. That means more time to enjoy a fun environment, full of options for playtime. The museum is an indoor playground that builds minds and encourages creativity.

“We’re planning to have another exciting summer,” Angela Colton, executive director of the museum, said. “We hope the community joins us during the break from school and that they stop by to see all that the museum has to offer.”
