  • This is a fabulous museum for ages 10 and under! There are so many things for kids to explore! The planetarium and Omni are probably better for older kiddos! It's pricey but most museums are! Super fu...  more »

  • Decided to take the kids after Sunday church. The museum was not too crowded. The kids were able to enjoy the Clifford and Dora exhibits. We ran out of time since we got there mid afternoon. We have p...  more »

  • My kids love visiting the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History when we are in town every couple years. The museum isn't huge compared to the Perot, but I like it better because the crowds are more manageable. My 10 and 7 year old kids spent over an hour in the innovation studios area alone. My four year old and his same age cousin had a blast in the Dora and Diego special exhibit. In all we stated about three and a half hours and only covered half the museum. I was a bit disappointed in the courtyard water play area. It needs a major update. It is looking pretty run down. My kids usually love the outdoor dino dig area, but we didn't have time to stop there this time. We went in the morning, just a few days before all the local kids were out on summer break so it wasn't very crowded.
  • What a great way to spend a day. They are constantly swapping out exhibits. The staff is friendly and helpful. The cafeteria closes early so if you can bring snacks. Look into a membership it will pay for itself in the third visit. If your on the fence with the membership just do it you can't really lose. It includes: free convenient parking, free Imax tickets (4), free guest passes and keep in mind a member can have a free +1. Just a parting note try to avoid going during the Stock Show.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff. And great exhibits for all ages. Maps are given when you first enter and everything is clearly marked. My kids liked it so much, they did not want to leave.
  • Had a great time here. We had not been here in a few years. They have added many more displays and rooms. The Saturday we went was fairly crowded with children, but it was still good. Very good place for families, especially with small children. Lots of hands-on science things to do, like a giant lite-brite board to make neat designs, etc. They even have an IMAX 3D theater that shows neat nature shows and a planetarium.
  • Amazing museum. Love all the interactive exhibits. Need to update their IMAX it is looking raggedy image quality was poor last one I watched.
