This is a very nice museum with fantastic displays. This is a plus and a con - it draws a lot of people, especially the Saturday afternoon we were there, so much so, the line to experience a hands on activity was just too long. Some activities were broken, probably from over use. They should do a better job at... More

This museum is hands on and fascinating. With fossils from right around Dallas and information on the oil fields, there is so much to see and do that we had to make two trips!

In order to enjoy this overwhelming museum of exhibits and detailed descriptions of exhibited items, one really needs to buy a membership and go back over and over. You definitely cannot rush through the exhibits. I was personally disappointed in the elevator service although stairs are provided. I also think the entrance fee is rather high.

A one day trip is surely not enough. Great hands on activities for all ages. Saw the Galapagos 3D movie. Loved it!!! Makes me want to go there. Decent Wolfgang restaurant that one can visit after spending a day there.

Great place for kids and adults alike. Tons of interactive displays on 4 floors. Go early. Takes a full 3-4 hours to cover everything.

We took the grand kids and they adored this as much as we did. They had many types of animated animals among several other very interesting things to do. The kids really loved and enjoyed it. They visit often with school field trips and such.

It is hard to get everything done in one day. My kids loved this place. So much fun and hands on things for them to do. Will try to go back very 3 to 4 months!
