We visited the museum at 2pm, just as all the school buses were pulling away. It seemed as though we had the whole place to ourselves. We watched the Imax movie, Jerusalem, which was very well done, and we had enough time left to tour the first floor. In the two visits here, we've never made it to the second... More

This is a great place to take children, such diversity in exhibits and interaction with a Texas fare. Spent about 2 hours and the children and adults alike were entertained. Round up cows, dig for fossils, make your plane fly and explore energy. Fun time

Our kids, 9yr and 6yr old, really liked this stop on our trip. They have lots of fun areas for the kids to play and learn. My kids really enjoyed all the different areas. Everyone that we spoke to that worked there was very friendly and great with the kids. The only negative I would say is that the dinosaur... 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
