If you are into evolution you might enjoy this. I don't buy the "billion and billions of years ago we all came from apes" but they have a lot of interesting things to look at, especially the gemstones. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon and it was crowded and hot. Long lines and crowded elevators. Not what I expected.

This museum is fun for all ages, my kids really enjoyed it and didn't want to leave! They have so many activities that kept them entertained and held their attention. Definately want to go back. Also parking in the garage was close and convenient. There were many outdoor areas that were unique and the kids had fun at too. Went... More

When I lived in Dallas my husband and I stayed at the W did a 'stay-cay.' LOL We visited this museum one day and loved every bit of it. Neither one of us are typically museum people, but this place kept us entertained. They also have nightly functions for adult only. We were sad we already had plans. Next time... More

Week of Spring Break: extended hours to 7 pm! This was our first visit, as we live out of town, and the museum was recommended by a friend. We were also considering the Ft Worth Science museum, but Trip Advisor reviews convinced us this was the option for the better bang for our buck. We only purchased the general admission... More

The persons hired to arrange, design and implement the displays and interactive portions were expert. The building is stunning, functional, comfortable, and appealing. The displays and shows are all well worth one's time. All ages are engaged. Boredom would be a real achievement, I feel. In addition to the functionality of the exhibits, their beauty and grace are exceptional, when... More

An amazing museum with more attractions that can reasonable be appreciated in one day. There is something for everyone of any age. This has both indoor activities and outdoor ones. The outdoor area has interactive landscaping that has water features that children can play in, and sculptures that can be touched, climbed on and played as musical instruments. The only... More

The museum is on 5 levels with each level having a different theme. The exhibits are very informative and interactive. My 3 year old daughter especially liked the bird simulation machine in the dinosaur room. There is also an earthquake simulator and a chance for you to outrun a cheetah which are both a lot of fun. There is also... More
