My elementary-aged children spent an entire day at the Perot Museum, fully engaged in the interactive exhibits. The museum is well-organized and well-designed. Educational for all.

Visiting during Spring break can be very challenging but this excellent interactive museum inside a very unique building is always busy with children and families - that's good. Get there when it opens and move through efficiently. The Texas Instruments Innovation and Engineering Hall is a must see and DO - plan to spend extra time there. See movies later... More

We when during spring break (required but bad timing) with my two teenaged grandchildren. We did the whole ball of wax, the permanent exhibitions, the Myna temporary exhibition, and the movie on extreme weather. It was most of the day. They had been when they were younger and focused on different things this time but were totally engrossed in the... More

Came here after visiting JFK memorial with our teen who loves science. Now we have the same sort of centre back home (Australia) so thought we'd give this a whirl. It's a good attraction but our teen had outgrown it. We enjoyed the different Crystal rocks but found, for us, the rest a bit same old. It's a great place... More

My family & I went to the Perot Museum of Nature & Science for the first time today. We arrived around 11:15 am. We thought we were arriving relatively early & would beat some of the crowd but apparently others had the same idea we did. We stood in line for tickets for about 15 minutes. We could've bought them... More

Fourth floor with the dinosaurs was our favorite exhibit; however, the dinos could use some dusting. My tweens also enjoyed the robotics exhibit on the 2nd floor.

Covered the museum part of the Dallas CityPass. It's nice for the kids but I've seen better in other cities in the world. The highlight was the 3D movie show - I picked the one on global weather changes.

There is so much to see in this museum, you could spend a week there! Hands-on, and interactive - there's so much to experience, you'll want to spend all day - and come back often.

This is a neat museum with lots of things to see. It's interactive for kids and adults. You can spend anywhere from a couple hours to all day there. My only complaint is that it's very open & lots of glass. This is not good when you have issues with heights or vertigo.
