I recently visited the Perot Museum with a family, and we all had a great time!

The layout of the museum, and the visit times, has been intelligently planned to move people seamlessly through the exhibits, without overcrowding. This is greatly appreciated, as it contributed to a stress-free visit.

We had an older person who needed a wheelchair, and the staff was so helpful in providing one very quickly, with no hassle.

The exhibits and activities are interesting and fun for everyone. From the hi-tech (compare your throwing method to Roger Staubach's), to the amazing (watching the earth change over millions of years), to the interesting (the wonderful panoramas from the old Natural History Museum), we were awed by every exhibit.

We'll be back again and again!

This museum is fairly new so the exhibits are in good working condition. It does get a bit crowded, especially with school field trips so don't expect to be able to experience all the hands-on displays they have. Overall, a nice place to spend an afternoon with children.

Expected much more to see. Compared to the Chicago Museum of Science, the Perot was disappointing with probably 20% as many exhibits. The museum is too crowded for visitors to interact with some of the individual exhibits.

Having said that, we did enjoy the Hunt energy hall which explained the origin, extraction and refining of fossil fuel and the building itself. The earthquake simulator was exciting as it let you experience an earthquake of 9 magnitude.

I took my cousin there since it was new. It's much nicer than any other of the museum I visited in the DFW area. Lots of fun interactive stuff even for older kids like us students.

We went on a school field trip to the museum. It exceeded expectations! You could spend all day there. The students were not ready to leave (8&9 year olds).
