Getting to know you: Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center


Today, the kids and I attended the opening of the Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center (FBCDC). It was a great opportunity to take a peek at the newest children's museum in Sugar Land. The location of the museum is at the old sugar factory, the Imperial Market. The museum is housed inside a 12,500 square foot repurposed historical building.

The atmosphere was festive and I enjoyed all the effort the FBCDC put into this event. While we waited to get in, we enjoyed an acrobat show, a photo booth and a quick look at the Sugar Land Heritage Museum. I was fascinated with the photos of Sugar Land from the past. The kids also enjoyed seeing the train from so close - the tracks are really close to the museum.

Our tickets would have costed $48 but today it was free (they had a donor). We also got t-shirts and other freebies while waiting. I was a smart mamãe (mom) and I took water and a few snacks for the kids. They do sell snacks inside but I didn't notice a restaurant inside. Another great news: parking is free. I know, it can't get better than that folks!

If you are familiar with the Children's Museum of Houston, you will recognize several of the exhibitions in the FBCDC. The place really is set up for children to learn as they have fun. I saw that super cute spot for kids 35 months and under so if you have tiny humans, you may want to take them there for a fun playdate. Oh, kids 1 and under get in free.

The FBCDC is a great place for families and groups to enjoy. Our family is planning on returning again.
