  • They have great things for all ages so while children have lots of displays that will interest them, there’s just as much for adults. We went very early on a weekday which I highly recommend. There...  more »

  • We spent an afternoon at the Perot Museum, and while it was pleasant enough, we expected a little bit more. Some aspects were great. Great paleontology department and the skeletons are impressive...  more »
  • This isn't your normal, run of the mill museum. They have a good number of interactive exhibits that do a good job of actually teaching visitors about the science rather than just doing a lot of reading. There is also a splash pad outside the entrance that is pretty awesome. My reason for a 4 star rating is that they are a bit small for the number of visitors that they get and if you don't enjoy being elbow to elbow with other people for extended periods of time, plan your visit carefully or just don't go.
  • My family and I love the Perot Museum! The kids always enjoy themselves and ask to go back the very next day. It’s nice, clean, educational, and affordable. I love the Art of the Brick exhibit. It’s by far my favorite.I recommend getting there early and staying until closing to take advantage of everything. The kids love taking advantage of the outside features. I normally grab a drink and snack to consume while they play. I highly recommend!!!!!!
  • Who wouldn't love science when it's presented in an interesting and digestible way? The Perot is at least a day's time well-spent, particularly if you have children, with many exhibits suitable for them as well as adults. Even the little cafeteria was excellent, with good food at very reasonable prices. Wonderful staff are on-hand, especially at the far end of the dinosaur level, explaining the minutia of her vocation. Can't recommend this museum highly enough.
  • We went to see the LEGO exhibit. It was fun! The other exhibits are well done and very entertaining. There's a lot to see! The Cafe has a wide variety to choose from and does it's best to reuse, reduce, recycle. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked.
  • Amazing exhibits focusing on Texas natural science past and present. Small enough to enjoy in an afternoon or longer with all the hands on exhibits. Food in the cafe was wonderful and staff was extremely pleasant! Enjoyed the movie Apollo 11 and the Art of the Brick exhibit! Absolute fun for all ages! I’ve recommended to friends with children and grandchildren! It’s a must see if you’re in Dallas!
