Overview

The Perot Museum in Dallas is a natural history and science museum throttled into overdrive. With five floors and 11 exhibits jam-packed with hands-on activities and 3D animation, this mind-blowing destination is sure to keep you spellbound for hours.The Perot Museum is a place where families can learn together and individuals can take a break from their daily routines to ponder the vast mysteries of science.The Museum of Nature & Science was the remarkable result of a 2006 merger between the Dallas Museum of Natural History (est. 1936),The Science Place (est. 1946),and the Dallas Children's Museum (est. 1995).Combining collections-based natural history with man's scientific and technological achievements, the Museum presented exciting exhibitions and educational programs for audiences, from early childhood to lifelong learners.In May 2008, the five adult children of Margot and Ross Perot contributed a $50 million gift and the Museum was named in honor of the Perot family.
