Learning During Spring Break

Young people of all ages are on spring break this week. Many college students head to popular beaches to let off some stress before hitting the books again. But what about the little ones? Where can they go? One of the most popular places is the museum.
Bill Stamps has more.

The line outside the Children’s Museum of Houston was stretched around the block. That was for parking. Inside, it was like a zoo…only it was the museum. Kids everywhere. Normally kids are told they can’t touch. But not here.

Pam Davis brought a group of them.

“I have two older and two younger. They’ve never been. I can remember coming when I was in daycare and I was like ‘y’all gotta go’. So that’s what we’re doing.”

Tickets are seven dollars for adults and children two and over. The admission covers everything inside. Shelley Green brought her daughter Ashley, who would normally be listening to her first grade teacher on a Monday afternoon, but today she gets to play at the museum.

“Have you been to the museum before?”


“Do you like it?”


The sign outside the museum says it’s a playground for the mind. Parents like that their children learn and play at the same time.
