I was prepared to not like this museum at all since it is "high tech" and replaces a much beloved museum in Fair Park. Boy, was I wrong. The "high tech" is not at all standing in front of a computer keyboard and watching things on the screen. There are so many interactive exhibits and hands-on experiences.
I don't think you can see it all in one go, unless you are really dedicated, and running. In the Dinosaur Hall, for example, there is one magnetic wall with large (think 2 or 3 feet) pieces of dinosaurs and kids and adults can put them together to make "new" creatures. We made a large dinosaur with legs of another dinosaur coming out of his head for horns.
In the bird section, you can don 3D glasses, stand in front of a screen, extend your arms and fly like a bird, with your flight reflected, real time, on the large screen in front of you. Pay no attention to all the advice you get from the sidelines.
In the Sports section, you can race a TRes, a cheetah, a pro athlete -- you choose. (You will lose.)
There is a wall that lights up when you touch it, so it's fun to run along it and trail lights from your fingertips.
You can make music walking down the stairs, or up the stairs.
There are four or five large marimbas out front, with mallets. They are made out of steel and other materials, and you can improvise tunes with the strangers at the other "keyboards."
Wow. Buy a membership if you live in the area and get free visits for your family for the year.
Can you tell it's fun for kids and grownups?
