  • Great place for family day. There was so much to see, do and learn. The building is nice and the views from the windows are nice as well. We did the general admission part and the special exhibit which was "Space" when we went and we took our time. It was easy full 3hr visit for our day there. We did not purchase any film tickets so we did just the exhibits allowed for our ticket purchases, which we bought online. The elevators are nice and very roomy so families with strollers or assisted mobile chairs have plenty of room to fit and easy to get in and out of them. We didn't purchase a season pass but if you have young kids that love hands on learning this is a great place to visit several times with changing exhibits.
  • What an amazing experience we had here as a family. It truly is something that everyone should experience. There's something here for everyone to enjoy, regardless of age. The employees were friendly and helpful. The cafe was clean, efficient, and reasonably priced. I would recommend you get a multiple day pass if possible. We got here at opening time and stayed until almost closing and only saw 3/4 of the exhibits. I wish we had more time. Will definitely have to go back.
  • One of the best children's museums we have ever been to. It's fabulous! Be sure to go early to allow as much time as possible. They have something for everyone from the youngest to the oldest! It's such an amazing experience. My son and I closed it down. We were dead dog tired, but just didn't want to leave. Dinosaurs, gemstones, weather patterns, biology, chemistry, birds, electricity, space....the list goes on and on. It's worth the money!
  • The Perot museum is a great place to come for all ages! There are many interactive things to do on every floor and there's a lot of information every where you look. You can definitely spend a few hours here exploring everything there is to offer. There is also a cafe area if you need a bite and an amazing gift shop to bring home a souvenir of your adventures 😎 👍👍
  • This was a very nice place with a lot of interesting things to see. I was there on New Years eve for a wedding and had a great time. The entertainment was great, the food was excellent, and the museum was spectacular. I would have given you a 5 star if wasn't for your security guard. When the wedding was over the last of the guest went outside to get on the bus. It was extremely cold and when the bus was full and left them to go and drop off the passengers they had the smaller party returned to the building to get out of the cold. Security wouldn't allow them to re-enter the building. My 86 year old mother-in-law in a wheel chair was left in the cold to wait for a bus that took over 30 minutes to return, due to the traffic. I heard about this later that night and was extremely upset that he kept people and the elderly outside when it was nothing for him to unlock a door and allow them to stay inside where it was warm for 30 minutes.
