Took the kids & had a blast! Very well designed Museum. My kids enjoyed the hands-on exhibits on the second floor the best. The oil/energy section was a little propogandish, but otherwise informative.

Go early, and even with CityPass, you will not have lines (at opening, crowds by noon). Unlike any other similarly-sized museum we have visited, Perot offers both high-quality robotics and evolution exhibits. I agree with the other reviewer: a combination of Smithsonian's natural history and Chicago's Museum of History. However, unlike Chicago, a lot of the interactives are out of... More

Excellent! Everything was hand's on and interactive. So much fun for kids and adults. Plan a day of this. There is even a 3d movie you watch. If I were to come back to Dallas I would go again.

Took 2 preteen boys and they had a ball. Go as early as you can and look at the membership option if you have a group. Lots of hands on exhibits. Don't feel like you have to rush and see everything - it's not possible unless you're spending more than 3 hours. 3D extreme weather movie was interesting but not... More

We were visiting family and wanted something to do with all the kids so we choose this museum because it seemed to fit a variety of age groups and interests. The museum was alright... the kids loved the sports exhibit and the engineering room. Those are the main reasons to go in our opinion and we spent a majority of... More

Took my young granddaughter and wife to this truly great science museum in downtown Dallas. We all had a great time, and my wife does not like museums. Some really cool sports related and of course Texas geology and archeology included. You want dinosaurs? You got 'em. You want to race a cheetah? How about trying to outrun a T-rex?... More

We went to this museum based on the good reviews it received and we were not disappointed. We were able to go through every exhibit in a non-rushed manner despite it being the Dec holiday season. This place is not only interesting for the kids but also the adults. My favorite part was on the minerals and crystals, and for... More

This is probably our kids' favorite place in all of Dallas. A great trip on a cloudy or sunny day. The Perot is a must - see trip when visiting Dallas or if you live nearby. Five levels of museum and IMAX theater bring plenty of fun and activities for children of all ages. Enough interactive displays to keep all... More

I brought my 3 oldest g'kids a few yrs ago and we had a great time. I bought tickets on Monday for 1 adult and 5 kids for a Wednesday visit. I got sick, really sick. Thought it might be flu. Went to their site to see if I could move the tickets out a bit. Couldn't find any info... More

Purchased full activities tickets so included general admission, birds of paradise exhibit, 3d movie. In general everything was nothing more than average. Spent 5 hours going through... everything. Displays are becoming outdated if compared to some other museums (ie. Houston's Nature and Science Museum). There was a children's museum, but was allowed for only 5 years old or below. -My... More
