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

We have a membership to the museum, and my kids never get tired of going. They range in ages from 4-10. I personally wish they would dedicate more space to other areas of science as opposed to a natural gas exhibit. My kids do love the Energy Blast Adventure, and they ask to watch it every time we go. I... More

Change is good, but you can also miss the past. Have visited this facility for over 55 years, and have enjoyed each experience. Today, you have an emphasis on the younger guest, but there is still plenty for everyone to enjoy. It is best to plan your trip on the internet before visiting for the best experience. Only members get... More

We've been members for years. Our older boys are starting to outgrow it, but our 5-year-old adores it every time. The little grocery store is hands down his favorite. Parking is convenient and free for members. Overall, a membership is a good value, especially if you travel to other cities and visit children's museums.

There is a great exhibit about the history of cattle ranching. I learned about the different ranches and how they got started. There is also a great dinosaur exhibit. It's a great place for children to explore with interactive displays.

This is a hands on learner paradise! One of the best interactive museums I've been too! There are exhibits on energy creation, wind, music, math, light, and a planetarium just to name a few, a good value but add parking it's $5. My little one took away basic concepts older children can really apply math up to algebra. I'd give... More

The Fort Worth Museum of science and history is a wonderful place for families and children. I took my 5 year old and he had a blast interacting with all of the exhibits. He loved loved loved the light exhibit and the train exhibit. The Omni theater is a great experience but costs extra, so plan ahead and bring a... More

This is a great museum. It is geared toward the under-10 set, so our 10-year-old and 13-year-old enjoyed it, but it was not as fun for them as it would have been a few years younger.
