“A new jewel in the Dallas Arts District”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Run, don't walk, to the phone or laptop to book tickets to this stunning new museum that is packing visitors in every day since opening in December of 2012. Plan a day when your family or friends can go, and book ahead - they do sell out. If you live in Dallas, the Perot should be at the top of your list for local attractions for your family as well as guests. Several floors of exhibits showcase everything that's great about nature and science. Highlights include the new energy hall, which shows in great detail how the energy business, one of the area's top industries, works. The Perot boasts a masterful array of things that will interest visitors of all ages. But be reminded: The Perot is popular, so plan your visit and reserve your tickets in advance. Then go and enjoy, and plan to spend the whole day there!

“Don't miss this one in Dallas”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Perot Museum is an absolute must for all science lovers and people with curiosity! The museum is HUGE and you will need multiple visits to cover it entirely. If you are a family with kids, I would recommend seeing the first floor first- there are many interactive exhibits that allow hands on science experiments. Even the sports section is enjoyable for kids. Other very interesting sections are: Universe, Evolution and Earth Minerals. I could go on and on about how informative and fun this museum is, but you HAVE to visit it if you are in Dallas to see it for yourself! It is a weekend well spent.

“This is a MUST SEE attraction if visiting Dallas!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our daughter was in town, and we took her there....Be prepared for long wait if you don't pre-purchase tickets / parking pass (recommend going on-line).

All exhibits were exceptional, although several items weren't working yet in the Energy Pavilion, but the other exhibits more than made up for it!

“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We took the kids and grandkids here because the weather was extremely cold, and I was expecting to pretty much chaperone for the day. But this place turned out to be a world-class museum with much more than a family could see in a day; and there was something for everyone. All 4 levels are filled with classy displays, dioramas, and interactive learning experiences, with the science, astronomy, archaeology, and bird displays breathtaking. The toddlers and small kids loved the children's section downstairs. Not vey often a museum exceeds expectations to the degree that this one did!

Buy your tickets on line a day or two before you go; we had to wait a day because they were sold out. This policy kept all the floors from being overcrowded, and we were thankful in the end.
