A great way to spend a hot summer day. There are lockers you can rent is you cont want to carry everything around with you. As you walk in the door the first thing you see is a beam from one of the twin towers. You can read all out the beam. There is something for everyone to do here... More

My son and I went to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on a Sunday Oct 12, and stayed from opening to closing (12-5PM). There was plenty for my son to do, and we were only able to cover about two-thirds of the museum in the time we were there. There was a water exhibit which let my... More

Excellent and interesting activities for children of all ages! My grandsons especially enjoyed the dinosaur bone hunt. Many and various interactive things to do. We also liked the planetarium.

We have been here several times and really enjoy the variety this place has to offer. The IMAX theater is a great place to catch a short documentary, or full feature film. The planetary is a great place to sit back and learn a little about those stars we never see because of all the light pollution, and there is... More

This place was nice, clean and the staff seemed eager to please! There was a ton of stuff for my 2 year old son to see and do and a lot of things he could put his hands on, but that's it. Not a lot to really see and do for the parents also. I took my boy to the... More

We had an absolute blast! Two adults and an 8 year old. Ideal day for elementary aged kids. We started with the Indiana Jones special exhibit - really not for little kids, but OK for 8 or 9 and up. The movie stuff was interesting, but the archeology information was REALLY interesting! There was lots of seating to watch the... More

We took the family to visit and see the Imax movie. They have turned the inside into a number of discovery areas for small children and see to have removed the traditional museum stuff. The Cattleman Museum was the exception and we were interested to learn more about it. The Planetarium talk was a waste. My 13 yr old grandson... More

Our first visit to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History left us impressed. They had more stuff for 5-10 year olds and nothing too technical or scientific. They do have quite a few hands-on experiments in the innovations lab area. The place is also reasonably small that one can do it in a day and not ever feel... More

They are way too proud of the design of the building to muck it up will silly exhibits. Can be seen by an adult in an hour or less. Save your money and go to the Perot in Dallas.

We participated in the Reel Adventure at the museum. This included a scavenger hunt and viewing of "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian". The scavenger hunt was so fun featuring costumed characters, historical learning, adventures in different areas of the museum, photo ops, autographs on souvenir poster, and loads of little gifts for the participants. The omni theatre... More
