    Looking to read, learn, and interact with everything available? -- 1) Purchase your ticket online. 2) Plan to be there from open to close. 3) Arrive early to locate parking! WORTH EVERY MINUTE.

    Get a family pass; you'll love it! My kids & I have visited dozens of times over the last few months. They have a great children's play area on LL. Race dinos, slow motion sports, & play with robots!

    A must visit in Dallas, beautiful, creative architecture that reflects the land. Explore 4 floors of Interactive exhibits that intrigue the mind and inspire to learn and discover our world & universe.

    I absolutely love this museum. The exhibits are stunning and interactive, with lots of relevant modern day applications. The dinosaur exhibit is my favorite, with the minerals a close second.

    Great interactive, fun for the entire family. Plenty of hands on exhibits. The staff is very knowledgeable. They roam each exhibit/floor and offer interesting facts. A must see if you are in Dallas

    Amazing museum! Totally recommend it for anyone in town. Worth the visit for kids, adults and elders :) one can spend the whole day in here... Definitely coming back

    Really fun but I'd definitely go during the week so you can actually enjoy the exhibits instead of tripping over strollers and some of the touchscreen things were broken (probably from the kids)

    If you buy a membership there are 'member only' times to get in before the general public. It's a great way to enjoy the exhibits without the crowds!! It is well worth the cost (which is reasonable)

    Be sure to buy tickets online, and for an early time, as they let in groups by time. You can show up later, and walk right in, but if your ticket I'd for a later time, you have to wait in line!

    This was such a fun museum to go to! Be sure to come early so you can have enough time to go to each exhibit. The cafe food was surprisingly good and be sure to go to the sports exhibit.

    Easily one of the nicest, modern Natural History museums we've ever been to. Great gem and mineral collection, very informative energy learning area. Covers life sciences, ancient & modern. 🌎🏞️🔥❄️

    Both adults and kids love this place! Get your tickets online ahead of time, where you can select your entry time. Great little downtown activity, where you can walk to a lunch spot after exploring.

    Water "park" at entrance is cool. Bring a swimsuit, clothes change, and towel for your kids. Moody Childrens Museum is great for kids <5. Get tix ahead of time and get there early to avoid long line.

    this is the best I had ever been- and the variety it serves from Dinosaurs, Birds, Minerals, Engines, SCi-fi stuff, Discovering life- its hard to come out from one domain to other when you move on.

    Multiple visits definitely required.. I had only some energy left by the time I reached the 2nd floor (from top down). Love what they've done in every section.

    The dinosaur exhibit was great and the brain games were fun to to. Spent a full day so much to do. Kids enjoyed making a building sturdy enough for a 9.0 earthquake.

    Animals Inside Out Exhibit was FANTASTIC. Building was fantastic. Other than that this museum is mostly for children from 4 to 12ish. More of a science place instead of a museum.

    One of the best museums I've been to. Very modern and interactive. First weekend of the month is free for Bank of America customers!

    Went on a weekday and it was mobbed with hundreds of kids (mostly younger) on field trips; most of the groups left around 2pm. Many of the interactive exhibits were broken. Still a cool place!

    Lamar Hunt section was fun. Son loved racing athletes. Dinosaur exhibit is awesome. T-Rex and Apatosaurus fossils among the best.

    The newly veiled Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Downtown Dallas is a high-energy, hands-on science museum with 5 floors of exhibits, 3D computer animation and life-like simulation.

    Get a membership! You'll be coming back more than once. Pay for parking inside. It's halo price for members. Book the "Members Only" entry time and beat the crowds!

    If you’re even remotely curious about the natural world, set aside a good five hours to wander through this interactive science museum that’s geared toward kids.

    This is a really cool place. However, you may have to punt a few kids out of the way to get through the place.

    Overall a great museum. Place is huge so be ready to walk. Bring your lunch or walk to El Fenix. Cafe is small, crowded and overpriced. Food is amusement park quality. Wear shorts it is hot here!

    The real treat here is the astronaut ice cream: you can eat the same ice cream 344,000 meters below as the men cruising in space.

    Make sure you head up to the 4th floor and you/your kids to use the interactive bird simulation (free).

    If you’ve ever been curious about anything…at all…then head to the Perot Museum. Here you’ll find all kinds of exhibits on dinosaurs, cadavers, robotics, sports and much more.

    BUY YOUR TICKETS AND PARKING IN ADVANCE ONLINE! They monitor how many people are allowed to enter at one time, so don't show up unannounced... You'll likely be turned away.

    Always secure your tickets online beforehand. It'll help you get in faster and you can always apply those tickets purchased to a membership!

    If you've got kids, just save yourself the money and buy a membership. An interested 8 yr old can only take in one floor at a time before intellectual overload. Multiple visits required.

    easily the coolest museum I've been to. if you're crunched for time, check out the second floor first!!
  • Andre B.
    Pricey, but fun. My kids loved the build-a-bird game and the dinosaurs.
  • Becky H.
    Very kid centric. We had a city pass but still had to wait 30 minutes online which was a little ridiculous. It’s a very informational place with lots to do. It’s very “pro” oil/ natural gas.

    This is an amazing way to spend a day. Just remember to book ahead by getting tickets online.
