Tell your kids you’re taking them to a museum and the groans will be deafening. Not at the Witte science museum, located in Brackenridge Park, and famous for its four-story H-E-B Science Treehouse (in addition to a real two-story treehouse). Or how about the H-E-Buddy SkyCycle? Imagine tightrope walking except this is riding a bicycle on a cable. The kids can’t fall off—something to do with counterweight and gravity—and that’s why they’re here: to make the connection between science and real life in a way that’s fun. Admission is $8 for adults, discounts for seniors and children, free for children under three. Admission is free on Free Tuesdays from 3PM until 8PM.
