Great for all ages!

I have taken my grandchildren aged two thru twelve and the museum provides experiences for all! They never tire of visiting and each group has a favorite area to visit.

This is a large museum that can keep the whole family occupied. A wide variety of exhibits appeal to many interests. Get a map and choose your direction.

We went on the weekend and it was too crowded. It looked like some great interactive exhibits but people were pushing and there were long lines for the activities. They were regulating how many were inside (so more long lines) but just too many people. Would like to go back during the week.

I have been to Perot Museum many times. It is really a nice family place. Lots of hands on exhibits for kids. During the weekdays while school is in session schools bring their students and it can get loud and crowded. I have also brought my own science students to the museum several times and the kids love it. There... More

My first trip to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science was outstanding! I took my grandson and adult daughter and we all had a blast exploring this magnificent museum. While its not Smithsonian size, a full day can easily be spent here if one was to engage in every display and activity. One of the unique features of this... More

I visited the museum and the architecture is very impressive. The museum is built as a five level building and each level has their attraction; I loved the geology or minerals exhibition

We especailly enjoyed watching an IMAX movie even though we had to pay slightly more to do so, we feel it was worth it! Definately worth visit if you... More

My husband and I visited here in December. The museum has some really interesting exhibits and took us about an hour and a half to walk through. There are a few interactive things to try which helped to enhance the understanding of the science. I liked that many of the exhibits were specific to Texas. I think they have a... More

The museum is relatively new (2012, when it was relocated), the building itself is very modern. It’s very easy to reach and there’s plenty of parking paid parking). Price is 19$ for Adults and 12$ for children, it’s not very cheap, but it’s possible to save some $ by buying the Visit Dallas Pass, which combines the visit with other... More

The museum is located in central Dallas with plenty of paid parking around. Food inside is limited but plenty of restaurants outside. Great place to go with kids since there are a lot of kids activities. Also always external exhibits to go for
