I spent hours in the museum as it is so interactive for both adults and children. Very informative as well.

We came to Fort Worth from Plano just for this museum. We being, my grand daughter, 9; and my grown daughter; and myself. We arrived shortly after it opened on Saturday at 10:00. Parking cost us $10. The tickets to get inside cost something like $20 something and included the stock show which we were not going to. The day... More

We have been here twice and love it. Took our grand daughter there. She enjoyed the play and learn areas. The Imax movie is a must but get there early sit at the top. The bottom isn't good at all.

This museum is really slim on heavy science. It feels more like a kid's museum, with ample space dedicated to little people and not enough for people seeking a real science museum experience. The fracking/energy exhibit is quite large, and seemed a bit promotion for the whole business. The planetarium was a nice touch and the tiny lobby to that... More

In the spring and fall there are lots of great exhibits and areas for kids to learn and explore! They have a wonderful museum school in the summer and we went to our first IMAX showing this winter to a showing of The Polar Express which also included a pajama party, hot chocolate, and fun science experiments. Fun for the... More

Wonderful museum for adults and children of all ages! Lots of exhibits on the history of Texas, including some mammoth tusks, displays of what pioneer life was like, information on the Texas Revolution and The Republic of Texas. There is also an IMAX theater, a planetarium, and a wonderful sand area where kids can do a "dinosaur dig"! The permanent... More

I visited when I was in Fort Worth on business. It had a lot of great areas for kid exploration but I was a little disappointed in the adult attractions. There were only two and the IMAX movies only played in the late afternoon. Call ahead if you are interested in the IMAX to see when they are playing. There... More

We have been members here in the past and a membership pays for itself in a few visits, but the best thing about the museum is that it's geared toward children. There is a slide in the gift shop and indoor and outdoor fun for the kids including a large water play area and dino dig. Some of the exhibits... More

We brought the kids here for a little family vacation and it was incredible! We could have spent all day in here but we had a whole weekend of things planned! The kids loved the hand on stuff and they learned quite a bit and had a blast doing it! We will definitely be back to spend more time checking... More

My kids love this museum! We were gifted a membership and visit a few times a month. There is a lot for the kids to do: grocery shop, run a hospital, water play and fort building. The Omni theater and Noble planetarium are also impressive. I can't wait to see the Polar Express here!
