For all ages
Sep 2021 • Friends
They have great things for all ages so while children have lots of displays that will interest them, there’s just as much for adults. We went very early on a weekday which I highly recommend. There was plenty of space to take your time at each exhibit and not feel rushed or crowded and it was quiet so you could focus on what you were reading and looking at. As the afternoon approached I did notice the amount of people increasing as well as the noise level. You will appreciate the amount of hand sanitizer station especially since many displays are meant to be touched.

Wonderful place for all ages to enjoy. Everything was clean, staff was so kind and most exhibits were open. Bought the membership pass so we can go back often.

Expected a little more
Aug 2021
We spent an afternoon at the Perot Museum, and while it was pleasant enough, we expected a little bit more. Some aspects were great. Great paleontology department and the skeletons are impressive. Rocks and minerals department was also good. A lot of interesting things to see there. And the ten minute movie about the planets was excellent. Aside from that, the other exhibits didn't have a lot of interest. There was some earthquake thing that kids kept stomping on, and you could hear it two room away. Bird exhibit could have been more interesting. Not even sure if I remember anything else. Not a bad museum, but I would have liked more to it.

Nice day out at the Perot
Aug 2021
This museum is geared towards the kiddos, but it had enough to keep my wife and I interested for about an hour and a half. I especially enjoyed the gem display; what a great way to see rare stones. The staff was helpful and actually helped keep my wife from losing her phone! Huzzah, Perot staff!

Many interactive displays. Lots of things to do for preschool through adult ages. Varied topics from prehistoric, beautiful gems, robotics, physiology, etc.

Ups and downs
Aug 2021
Ups: Excellent, excellent paleontology exhibit. 5+ on this. They even had plant fossils! Mineral exhibit was also very good. Bathrooms are very lovely...especially the women's on the 4th floor (am I really complimenting a bathroom...it's late)
Downs: Whole top floor reads like a commercial for using fossil fuels. Very very little on problems or alternative energy. The taxidermy exhibits are very boring. The Mollusk exhibit answered few questions beyond shows lots of shells.

Well, it's a museum. The 4th floor was good
Aug 2021 • Family
I'm rating this based on my kid's enjoyment more than mine. After all, it's for them, right?

I personally enjoyed it, especially the fossils. The kids (9 and 12) seemed bored with it. They mostly ran through snapping pics and doing all 4 floors in under an hour. So we had to wait almost 90 minutes to do the Guinness exhibit we paid for. Not the museum's fault, you pick your own times.

Great Museum for kids
Jul 2021 • Friends
If you’re visiting or even live in the Dallas area and need something to do with your kids go here. My kids loved all the different things they got to see and experience.

Great Museum, great staff, great exhibits!

A good local science museum
Jun 2021
Good local science museum. No, it is not the American Museum of Natural History, but considering you're not in New Your, DC, or London, this is a good place to go. Exhibits cover ancient life, astronomy, biology, energy industry (a bit petrochemical focused, but it is Texas), and modern nature. a bit oriented towards younger children, but these places tend to be that way. Very science based - a good discussion of how evolution works, climate change affects the Earth....refreshing to see real hard science being put forward instead of dogma. Recommend it.
