Located near the campuses of South Texas Law College and the University of Houston, many families choose to kill three birds with one stone. And visit all three when they are downtown.

You will also get the unexpected bonus of getting up close but not so personal with some White Tigers in the Maharajas temple exhibit. Another must-visit for all the family
