OK, most science museums have a lot of hands-on learning stuff for kids, but also have some more substantial stuff for the adults. This museum does not have enough of the grown-up stuff. Basically everything on the ground floor is oriented to smaller kids to...More

Everyone needs to see this place. It is great and you come away feeling you really are so much more knowledgeable about Ft. Worth. Have not been in awhile, because I have already been here 3-4 times! Love this place.
