The Perot Museum of Nature and Science
The new and much talked about Perot Museum in now open right down the street from Klyde Warren Park and has become one of the busiest places in the Dallas area to bring your family on the weekend. The museums exhibits are very interactive and allow kids to spend time learning about everything from the oil and gas industry to prehistoric dinosaur fossils. I would recommend visiting during a week day if at all possible to (somewhat) avoid the crowds.

Opened in December 2012, the Perot has instantly become an in-demand destination for visitors and locals alike. With 180,000 square feet and five floors filled to bursting with elaborate, interactive exhibits on wildlife, biology, physics and more, the Perot makes it easy to spend an entire day unearthing amazing sights in every corner. Theaters delight with educational films that amaze the senses, and the cafe's offerings can sate even the pickiest palate. Don't miss the continuous-flow escalator that offers a breathtaking view of the Dallas skyline.
