I love that this museum had dinosaurs, mammals, energy, minerals, birds, and workshops/activities all under one roof plus much more. The best part, however, is the way the museum displays and explains the exhibits. It is not just a hall of items with placards, but an evolution where you build your learning item by item, happily interrupted by interactive exhibits... More

The museum had real stuffed animals on display. There were rocks, minerals and plenty of information to read. It has 4 levels, so each floor is a different Era. Lots of interactive games for kids. Lacks the level of Archaeology artifacts to be at a professional level. This is more for family and beginners. Everything here is in a College... More

We have visited this museum twice within two years. It is sort of on the pricey side but definitely offers a lot for every age group. You will also get some great views of the city!

I absolutely love this museum! We have been several times and it seems to offer something new every visit. There are several floors with interesting things on each level for people of all ages. One of my favorite areas to visit is the section which is about natural disasters - they have a platform that you step on to as... More

This museum is huge. It has a lot of hands on things for the kids to do. I found as an adult that I enjoyed them just as much as the children did. The buildings architecture is spectacular. It has a snack area. The price of admission is very reasonable.

Truly an amazing experience for all age groups and genders!! My girlfriend and I went a few hours before closing and we could not get through all the activities and interesting facts that the Perot Museum of Nature and Science had to offer! So, what did we do, we went back the next day and completed all the fun things... More

Whether going with children, alone or adults, this museum is great! They have ever changing displays and areas of emphasis. It is a beautifully designed building that makes you enjoy it even more to just walk through it. It is very inspiring and educational and I really love that they cater to teachers and schools.

We attended with our 3 year old grandson and other family members. He enjoyed many of the exhibits. The kids area is a lot of fun. His favorite is the brick area. It is very creatively designed for lots of imaginative play. The craft area is also great. Upstairs the exhibits are really interesting and well laid out. You need... More

Interesting place, in my opinion, more for the younger generations. Several Tex-Mex options across street.

It is a good place for kids. Nothing much for adults but still one time visit is good. Very small, but architecture of the building is cool
