great but not the best it could be

4 of 5 places were great places to visit (Children museum, Natural History, Zoo, NASA and Aquarium), even if it was not an "all inclusive" visit (you've got to pay extra for some activities). Only disappointed at the Aquarium, it was too small compared to the others. Two recommendations: pay the package, go the aquarium before the zoo. Be prepared to pay extra on every place if you want to enjoy all attractions though. Maybe a sightseeing tour could be included with an adjustment in price.

I used it in the 5 attractions without any inconvenience, without queues and you save 50% when you buy the pass. You can use the electric ticket at NASA and at the zoo, but to enter the history museum and the aquarium you have to first go to the sales window to show your reservation and exchange them for your paper tickets.

We loved the Museum of Natural Sciences. Kemah boardwalk was small. Johnson Space center had an female excellent presenter about science and the ISS but the boys behind the desk were Not helpful. Not impressed with their answer of download the app. So not helpful.

The zoo was great. The aquarium was just ok. Entry only. Had to buy tickets for the train and a couple of rides.

The pass was great,great value and so much to do with it

It was so much fun. Would recommend it to a friend.
