  • This isn't your normal, run of the mill museum. They have a good number of interactive exhibits that do a good job of actually teaching visitors about the science rather than just doing a lot of reading. There is also a splash pad outside the entrance that is pretty awesome. My reason for a 4 star rating is that they are a bit small for the number of visitors that they get and if you don't enjoy being elbow to elbow with other people for extended periods of time, plan your visit carefully or just don't go.
  • My family and I love the Perot Museum! The kids always enjoy themselves and ask to go back the very next day. It’s nice, clean, educational, and affordable. I love the Art of the Brick exhibit. It’s by far my favorite.I recommend getting there early and staying until closing to take advantage of everything. The kids love taking advantage of the outside features. I normally grab a drink and snack to consume while they play. I highly recommend!!!!!!
