We visited the museum - which is always a pleasure - during the Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology exhibit. Great exhibit - not to be missed!

We went there with our two year old daughter on a hot Sunday, and it was surprisingly not crowded. We spent 2.5 hours in the museum. We went to several areas within the museum. We first went to DinoLab. The information was good, but the space is rather small. It's not really an exhibit, but a room with dinosaur bones... More

I went there twice this week for the summer camp I work at. I would describe it as "the smallest museum in the biggest building." It is a very spacious building, but it seems to be filled with very little. Each section is very small. The "Dino Lab" was as big as my living room! There really wasn't much to... More

This place would only be fun for kids under age 4. There is a little shopping area with carts for kids, but not much on the shelves and the area looks dull. There is a sand digging area outside, but we can do that for free at the park.The price is outrageous for what you get

My family and I were in the area for a tournament at the stadium and decided to check it out. Waste of money, for sure. Just no "wow" factor. Now, if you have toddlers....I think it's worth it. A lot of activities for them. Otherwise, save your money. Also, we went into the cafe to buy a drink and it... More

I want to start off with the staff are all friendly and helpful. Prices are slightly high for what is available, but at least does include the planetarium. We saw the Indiana Jones exhibit. Nice, with lots of interesting items from the movies. However, it is a self guided tour with pre-recorded audio on headphones and a tablet you carry.... More

Growing up in Ft. Worth in the 50s and 60s, this museum was a treasure of information and exhibits from around the world. This new megabuilding has an okay museum for small children to run around, a 'temple' to fracking for natural gas and not much else. Pathetic. Go to the Witte in San Antonio or the Houston Museum of... More

If you are over 12 yrs old don't waste your time by visiting this museum. The museum should be named the Ft Worth kids museum. I felt misled and ripped off when I left. It's cost $30 to get in for my wife and I, that doesn't include anything. You cant go into the IMAX or any if the new... More

I have a 7 and 10 year old and they truly enjoy the science and history museum. During the warmer/summer months there is an outdoor water area which helps them learn about the force of water. Its fairly simple, not water rides or anything like that, just a few experiment areas, ie water guns and flowing water to show the... More

We've been members with the museum for years. Well worth it! This is one of the best interactive, hands on museums in the metroplex. The traveling exhibits always please and never disappoint. The Omni theater is unlike any other theater. IMAX theaters are cool, but the dome shape of the Omni is just a bit more of an experience. There... More
