Great Museum for kids
Jul 2021 • Friends
If you’re visiting or even live in the Dallas area and need something to do with your kids go here. My kids loved all the different things they got to see and experience.

Great Museum, great staff, great exhibits!

A good local science museum
Jun 2021
Good local science museum. No, it is not the American Museum of Natural History, but considering you're not in New Your, DC, or London, this is a good place to go. Exhibits cover ancient life, astronomy, biology, energy industry (a bit petrochemical focused, but it is Texas), and modern nature. a bit oriented towards younger children, but these places tend to be that way. Very science based - a good discussion of how evolution works, climate change affects the Earth....refreshing to see real hard science being put forward instead of dogma. Recommend it.

Interesting and Informative
Jun 2021
The museum is located in a sleek building in the downtown area of Dallas. Due to Coronavirus, all tickets must be purchased for a specified entry time, although you can enter 30 minutes before the time scheduled on the ticket.

The building itself is fairly large and is split among five levels. The exhibits that I visited were all very informative but at the same time logical to walk through and simple to understand. The museum may feel like it is geared towards younger children but that was not the case, most exhibits appealed to just about every age group. In particular, the Earth Hall and the Gems and Minerals Hall seemed to be more geared towards a mature audience.

I would recommend planning for at minimum a couple hours here unless you are in a rush and just looking through. The museum itself is very thorough and encompassing and I burnt around two and a half hours looking primarily through four exhibits, so if you want to see more or you go more depth at each exhibit, I would recommend upwards of three hours here.

Modern science museum suitable for a family outing
May 2021
The museum is modern and has a pretty nice design to make a self-guided tour with family and kids. A mix of interactive exhibits (mount your own dino, earthquake floor-shaker, tornado spinner, etc) make for more interesting and engaging experiences.

The dino exhibit has limited original fossils, but has an abundance of reproductions and also a lab with a technician showing the process of fossil recovery.

Our kids loved the dino part and then started getting tired from the level below. It is a large museum and I think any visitor needs to gauge the level of patience and interest based on the people coming along.

I enjoyed the visit - wish I had more time, but my kids made me speed thru the exhibit.

I also noticed that Perot's endowment was very friendly to the big oil interests in their exposition of fossil fuel science.

*At the time of visit, we had to schedule due to social distancing protocols and we ended up arriving to the entrance about an hour before our time slot... as a result we were oriented to wait or buy the Guinness Record Tour exhibit. We couldn't wait so we plunked additional cash to add that exhibit after which we could go up to the main museum spaces

Great experiences!
Jun 2021 • Family
We went on a Saturday. Due to Covid restrictions, all tickets are purchased online for a specific entry time. Once in, you can stay until closing. Redeeming was easy; just open email bar codes from your phone and scan. Just a note, masks are personal preference and are not enforced, only in the gift shop are they highly recommended. So a mix of mask wearers and non wearers. The escalators were closed when we went. We took the stairs for exercise; but there are three or four large elelvators as well. May interactive things to explore. We spent about 1.5 hours. If you like to test everything, plan on spending more time. There is an eatery and gift shop as well; so plan for time there too.

Very hands on museum
May 2021
This is a very nice museum. They tried to use Covid protocols as much as possible by limiting the numbers of people throughout the day, providing lots of hand sanitizer all over the museum and asking people to wear masks and social distance. However, this is a very hands-on museum and no way to keep up with cleaning each experience after every use. We went in the afternoon and were told we were smart to do so because the mornings are filled with children on school field trips. it is handicapped friendly, which is good for me since I use a mobility scooter. The exhibits are mostly science related with lots of experiments to do. It is a good size but small enough to be covered in 2 to 3 hours.

Amazing learning experience
Apr 2021 • Couples
We spent 3 hours here. My husband could have stayed a whole day 😁. Very organized, child and senior friendly. The section dedicated to our brain was so interesting, and the dinosaur and gem section are spectacular! We will definitely return. All the attendants make your stay feel very welcoming. The parking lot attendant even helps by swiping your credit card for you. This place is very well run. I overheard a group of children asking their mother if they could spend the night. This is a five floor museum where every floor is dedicated to two topic of our world.

Very interactive museum and has a lot to do for every age bracket in the family. A place where you can learn and have fun with the family due to the interactive design.
