I worked at Houston Museum of Natural Science part-time (Less than a year)
I love the museum! Working here was fun and since you rotate through the different areas, it doesn't get boring. If you like what the museum offers (as opposed to it just being another job) then one huge perk is being able to see all the IMAX films and visit the special exhibition halls for free. It's also interesting if you like to people watch. Everyone in general is pretty friendly and the CSR manager is really cool about scheduling. I liked the option of being able to wear HMNS t-shirts as part of the uniform; it's nice to be comfortable.
The biggest cons are having to repeat yourself over and over to visitors at the museum ("Please stop touching the xyz. Excuse me, there's no photography in this exhibit.") but that's a given in a customer-heavy environment, and that the only food available close by is the McDonald's inside the museum. The slightly annoying con is the cliques that form within the workforce since the CSR pool is mostly a younger group (early to mid-20s); some days it was like being in high school all over again.

It was easy. The team was very nice and everyone there was helpful I am so surprised that I got called back in two hours. It was a very positive experience.
