Headed to Dallas with the kids anytime soon? If so, have we got a place for you to visit!
Visit the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Since opening in late November of 2012, this new Dallas attraction is receiving rave reviews from both big and little people (and now US!). This past weekend, we loaded up the kids and headed downtown to experience this much talked about site for ourselves. To say we fell in love would be an understatement. We spent 4 hours exploring each of the multiple levels. Our toddlers ran free, even though it was crazy busy. The bathrooms were clean (YES!), the people were nice and the exhibits OH MY AMAZING!
Your toddler will love this place, and so will you. Here are a few of our adventures at the Perot Museum. We loved it so much, we are now members. I see many trips here over the next year.
Know Before You Go to Perot Museum
Before you get too excited there are several things you should know before you head to the Perot Museum:
Tickets sale out quick. Order online a few days before you plan to attend. Tickets are sold in 30 minute intervals, so planning is a necessity.
Museum parking is under the bridge, south of Broom Street under Woodall Rodgers. Parking is paid upon exit or at the kiosks in the main lobby. $6 per car or $3 if you are a museum member.
The Perot Museum is extremely kid friendly! Feel free to bring a stroller and use the elevators (though you will spend sometime waiting on busy days).
While the museum is a few months old, this place is CRAWLING. If you are bringing kids, it maybe best to choose a non-peak time to go explore (mid-week would be best).
Over the last few years, Dallas has come into it’s own. We now have more than Southfork Ranch and a TV show (p.s. Southfork isn’t even in Dallas – it’s 20ish miles north!). As thirty somethings with a family that includes 2 toddlers, we need family activities. Dallas is becoming that place, and the Perot Museum proves it.
