We are from out of state & were a little hesitant after reading a review that said it was good for kids under 8. But our kids are age 9 & 12 & loved it. It was great to see the parts that are special to Texas - the cattle raisers area & the oil drilling. And they both enjoyed... More

If you are an adult, bypass the museum and see a show at the Omni to experience the dome theater. If you have kids under 8 they will enjoy the museum hands on experiences. If you are looking for a science and history museum for adults and older children, visit the Perot Museum in Dallas.

The museum is easy to find and has lots of parking. Right when we walked into the building we could see kids doing activities. After purchasing our tickets we quickly moved to the activities. Time flew by because we were having so much fun. REMEMBER PARENTS... BE HANDS ON... DON'T BE AFRAID TO HAVE FUN... making paper airplanes to brushing... More

This is the best IMAX theatre, as you feel completely surrounded. Intended to see a show about the South Pacific but had the wrong information and saw Humpback whales instead. It was fabulous!

A great place to keep kids 6 and under occupied and happy for a few hours, which is why we visited. Not a lot of interest for older kids, particularly teens. Except for a great IMAX theater and movie, not a lot to interest adults not trying to keep the young ones busy and interested. With a coupon, senior discounts,... More

My daughter and i really lived this place and I could tell several locals were in attendance. It was an interactive science center for the kids, my daughter's 9 yoa, as well as a section on Texas history. We would definitely stop here again and would recommend it for others. Even if I didn't have a child, I would probably... More

Where do I begin? This pace has grown SO much over the years. And the growth has been phenomenal. The exhibits are top notch! Please do yourself a favor and come spend the day here!!

Walking into the museum, the first thing one will see is an amazing artifact from the NYC World Trade Center. There are lots of activities for children. The most interesting was the power and energy exhibit. It's probably not interesting to young children but I learned a lot. This is a good museum and I'm glad I went but it... More

One thing I’ve learned from visiting numerous natural history museums: dinosaurs = kids everywhere. The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History occupies an interesting building with lots of room and first-rate displays. I would conclude that the nature of the exhibits and interactive features make this set-up primarily for kids (school tours abound), but not so much for adults.... More

We went to this museum on a rainy day in June with our three grandchildren, ages 11 seven and four. I know it is not technically a children's museum but believe me, this was just so much fun for adults and children alike! The price was extremely reasonable and the people who help you out are incredible. And do not... More
