There is some great Dallas education here. Was worth the investment of time. The museum is free and close to other things to do and see. Put it in your list for about an hour.

This is a very cool museum with very interesting exhibits. We enjoyed it very much. Only downside was having to mediate between an irate patron and one of the staff members due to a bathroom entry. It was silly, but shouldn't have happened.
