  • Great museum, but it needs to make one day (or evening) each week for adults only.
  • Anyone with the ability to rationally comprehend the information provided, could never leave this museum believing in Creationism. Intellectual honesty & examination of facts leads to the real truth!
  • The newly veiled Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Downtown Dallas is a high-energy, hands-on science museum with 5 floors of exhibits, 3D computer animation and life-like simulation.
  • If you've got kids, just save yourself the money and buy a membership. An interested 8 yr old can only take in one floor at a time before intellectual overload. Multiple visits required.
  • Live in a log: it's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
  • Take your kids... It's a really cool experience!
  • Make sure to fly like a bird on the 4th floor mezzanine!
  • This place is amazing. Take your time. See everything and catch a movie as well. The cafe is a little pricey, but tasty. Love this museum!
  • If you buy a membership there are 'member only' times to get in before the general public. It's a great way to enjoy the exhibits without the crowds!! It is well worth the cost (which is reasonable)
  • Park across from the north end apartments for $1 parking. @Cedar Springs & Field
  • Most gorgeous building
  • Went on a weekday and it was mobbed with hundreds of kids (mostly younger) on field trips; most of the groups left around 2pm. Many of the interactive exhibits were broken. Still a cool place!
  • Buy advance tickets with your teacher ID to get in free to exhibit
  • Even members must reserve tickets online in advance!!
  • Leaves you wondering how people belive in creationism
  • Always secure your tickets online beforehand. It'll help you get in faster and you can always apply those tickets purchased to a membership!
  • Don't forget to see the talking trash can.
  • Get a membership! You'll be coming back more than once. Pay for parking inside. It's halo price for members. Book the "Members Only" entry time and beat the crowds!
  • Museum was very cool, but very crowded. LOTS OF CHILDREN, not really a museum for adults without kids. Lines were long, and it was difficult to read with people bumping and standing around.
  • For a place geared toward children/families, the rather Spartan facilities were a bit of a surprise. I'd have expected diaper changing stations in the bathrooms at least.
