More for kid's than adults.

I thought this was a very nice museum. I really thought it appealed more to the 10 and under crowd than anything else. The displays were very nice and my girls (5 and 3) had a... read more

I thought this was a very nice museum. I really thought it appealed more to the 10 and under crowd than anything else. The displays were very nice and my girls (5 and 3) had a blast with many of the hands on activities. Wish we would have had more time to see the Planetarium and catch an I-max movie... More

We have been to several Science Museums and they all cater to children of all ages. This one is definitely more for the 10 and younger group with 10 maybe even being to old. So if your kids fit this range then it's a good way to spend the day. I say good not great cause there really isn't much... More

There's lots of different things to do for the kids here. There's even a play area for smaller kids that my 1.5 year old enjoyed. I was impressed by the fun activities for kids. I wish my son was able to go into the creation area where kids can "build" stuff. Very cool place! It's not too expensive, either. We... More

Planetarium, I Max, Fossils of dinosaurs & small meteorites that weigh more than 300lbs. Think your a vegan? Find out where all the animal products really go! Texas is a whole nother ' country!

We took our kids on a sunny day during spring break. There was plenty to see and do. They spent half an hour just digging for dinosaurs! We are members at the Perot Museum, so we received 4 free admissions to the FWMSH. Perot museum is much more state of the art than Fort Worth. However, Fort Worth seemed more... More

I've been in many museums. This is one of the best. Many hands on things for kids and adults. So much eye candy and information. Worth every penny to see.

This is my 5yo daughter's favorite place to go. We love the dinosaur exhibit and feel a sense of pride for our beloved Paluxysaurus. We regularly attend different showings at the imax theater here. My daughter loves the play areas and learning centers. The planetarium is now free with admission and we always try to catch a show while we're... More

For adults, the Energy exhibit, the Planetarium, and the Cattle Raisers Museum which is upstairs, are really interesting. All of this is free during the Ft. Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.

We bought a membership here last September so we could go more than once when my grandchildren came to visit. We also went to the Imax film in January. We enjoy this place - lots of hands-on activities for kids and adults. It is not a traditional museum, so does not have old things under glass cases. People who expect... More

I've been to this museum many times since I was a child in the early 1970s to the present. Sadly this museum is geared toward being for entertaining and a children's playground rather than for scientific education to inspire young and old minds alike. The changing exhibits I have seen in recent years all are based on television shows or... More
