They have so many awesome things for children under the age of 8 years old. My husband and I are kinda nerdy and were looking to enjoy a morning of learning interesting information. Most of the museum... read more »
I have lived in Fort Worth my whole life. Growing up, I remember the original Fort Worth History and Science museum well. There were tons of antiquities. They had Egyptian exhibits, a large Dino area with two skeletons fighting. Native American and ancient man exhibits and so on. It was a real museum. They tore that place down, hired a famous architect, spent tons of money, and built an air conditioned play ground. There is only really 3 exhibit areas and they are the weakest I have ever seen. I think it is sad what has happened to our museum. It was filled with awesome artifacts to learn about, but now it is extremely limited. I don't know what happened to all the artifacts they used to have, but in this building there isn't really anywhere to put them anyway. Really a shame they wasted all the money. It doesn't in anyway compare or compete with the history and science museum I have been to in other major cities.
I can't believe this is the same musem that I used to go to as a kid... well, it's not in a way. There is nothing interesting to do here anymore. Sure, it has a splash pad outside, but we used to play downstairs with all sorts of cool water contraptions, make tornadoes, lay on the bed of nails, climb around in the wagons & much more. Now there is just a water pad, a grocery center, a small dino exhibit, & a sort of hands on Science room. This was a huge dissatisfaction comparing it to what used to be.
We are members to take the kids, but they really need to spend some time working on the upkeep of the museum. Seems every time we go something is broken or really run down. We made a complaint a while back and never got any kind of response from customer service. Probably not going to renew after this year.
It's a little gimmicky now. Lots of exhibits for kids, it feels.like they could put a lot more thought into the floorplan and exhibits themselves. Right now it is definitely focusing on the eentertainment aspect, not the history aspect.
I grew up loving the old museum. With the dinosaurs and such and lots of amazing things that were fun to play with. The bed of nails, the maze, the big bubble maker, the water fountain, music stations, etc. There was a lot more real artifacts to learn from. Not this fake kiddie dumb-down crap.
