  • I went to High School in Fort Worth and loved the Museum of Science and History. I spent hours there and especially loved the medical exhibits. I moved away after college. Last week (2018) I took my grandkids there. I was dismayed that all my favorite exhibits were gone. Instead, the museum is essentially a children's museum now. Great for younger kids, but not for older kids or adults. Except for one travelling exhibit, there is little interest for adults ( the Antarctica exhibit was great!). So...the good is that if you have kids under 10, that is the target. But there is not much for older kids or adults.
  • Awesome place for my 2 year old. There's a lot of innovative ways to play and experience the museum. Adults can have a great time as well...something for all ages. Definitely will come back!
  • Our family have been to more than 50 museums nation wide. This one is the worst we have ever encountered. The museum literally has nothing to see and play. It only took us half an hour to finish the entire area. It charges $12 for a child, and $15 for an adult. And it charges $7 for parking additionally. It cost us 45 minuets driving in a very intense traffic to come here. We would never come back and we strong suggest you not waste your time and money here, not even for the sake of very busy traffic at 10:00 am in the morning.
  • I had so much fun with my family here. My 9-month-old really liked the water area and the area with the blocks. The Clifford the Big Red Dog exhibit was also a big hit - and so many cute photo opportunities! We loved all of the exhibits and plan on going back to see Curious George in the fall. Will remember next time that it's $7 to park in the museum lot.
  • fun place to go. My nieces enjoyed it. several exhibits don't work correctly, but the ones that do are very enjoyable.
