For starters, I used to work at this place as part of the security team for over two years. It provided me with enough experience as to recommend it largely as one of the most beautiful attractions in Dallas. Despite its modern construction, from the outside it could be seen just as a big square block of cement and steel... More

Like many hands on museums this place has youngsters in mind. This doesn't mean that an adult can't enjoy it; just let out your inner child for an afternoon to get the most. You could spend three hour here if you don all they interactive exhibits but you can get a great experience in 1 and a half. It doesn't... More

It is not a very big museum but a fairly good one to spend at least 2.5 hours. The entry of the museum would include an entry to watch a 3D documentary and I choose the one on Extreme Weather and it was really good. The museum has a lot of interesting displays and artefacts. There was a lot of... More

We expected the Perot Museum to be a "kids place", appealing to and educating children. It absolutely does this but at the same time has plenty of exhibits that will appeal to adults. The hall of minerals was my favorite. So don't wait for an opportunity to take your kids, grand kids, etc, go yourself. You will find plenty of... More

We have been members at Perot for two years now. The 3D movies and the renovated engineering hall are our favorites. The museum is large and we typically tend to visit and take in the offerings in little chunks. Our kid loves the place and the dinosaur exhibit is a personal favorite. Must see for Dallas visitors and two visits... More

Housed in a spectacular building by Morphosis architects, the Perot Museum is another cultural anchor in Dallas's increasingly rich downtown scene. Just off the deck park, and in a burgeoning area of the city center, the Perot Museum is a lively, entertaining venue for parents and kids.

Bought a City Pass and this was one of the museums included. Very colorful and interactive exhibits of all sorts. Glad to have missed the large groups of students... their buses left as we arrived.

There is something for everyone. Getting a family season pass is the best way to go if you want a good summer activity location.

I was very skeptical of finding much here to entertain my very active two year old, but was pleased to find lots of interactive kids friendly exhibits to touch or play with. Loved the wind tunnels to play with, blocks, and especially the 3D movie experience with the Wilds of Africa. My daughter also loves to touch the footprints of... More

This museum is easy to find. It has four levels with plenty of things to see. Plan on spending at least two hours there. On the bottom floor there is a place area for small children. The glass elevators were my daughters favorite part.
