HOUSTON - If you are looking for ways to keep the kids entertained this summer, the Children's Museum of Houston is the perfect staycation. It offers different activities for ages ranging from 0 to 13 years of age that are included with their $12 admission.

“The Children’s Museum of Houston is celebrating an action-packed summer. We are open seven days a week now. We know that families are looking for things to do, and we got plenty of things lined up.,” said Leti Luna, spokesperson for the museum.

This summer, kids can get on in the action, and they can be the star of their own movie. The museum is celebrating movies all summer long with five “movie sets” spread throughout: Superhero City, Dino World, Wizarding Workshop, Space Trek and Pirate Paradise. Kids can dress up and be different characters.

Even though the SECRET spy game is not included (it’s only $7), there is musical daily play and a daily showing of the movie “Into the Spider-Verse.”
