Dallas, TX 75201
Dallas Observer's Description
The Perot Museum, which offers some of the coolest modern architecture around as well as the craziest escalator you’ve ever seen, has attracted international attention since its opening in late 2012. Tons of interactive exhibits, from an earthquake simulator to a planetarium to racing a dinosaur, mean it’s constantly swarmed with rambunctious kids, so try to time your visit when most of them will be stuck in school -- like late on weekday afternoons or during the special adults-only evenings.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science located in Victory Park, near Downtown Dallas is said to be a "world of wonder" by The Dallas Morning News. Passing the test of school children, inspiring curiosity in all ages and boasting as a living science lesson, this new Museum opened its doors to the public on December 1, 2012. Get ready to amaze your brain through hands-on learning experiences.
Tips from foursquare
Great museum, but it needs to make one day (or evening) each week for adults only.
Anyone with the ability to rationally comprehend the information provided, could never leave this museum believing in Creationism. Intellectual honesty & examination of facts leads to the real truth!☺
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.
Live in a log: it's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
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.
