Expand your mind and explore the many levels and exhibits the Perot Museum in Dallas has to offer.

Explore and learn at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. Filled with five floors of permanent exhibits, the Perot Museum has interactive and exciting learning for all ages. For the little ones under five, explore the Moody Family Children's Museum on the lower level. Kids will love doing their own "grocery shopping," playing at the water table, going on an indoor nature hike, and more! Everything in this interactive exhibit is to scale for a five-year-old, so they will feel on top of the world playing here. One of the more fun exhibits that everyone loved is the Sports Hall. Get ready for some activity as you race against top athletes, animals, and even dinosaurs in the speed track! Test your reaction time in the reaction time exhibit, learn about how to balance activity and food, and even train like an athlete in the motion lab by perfecting your techniques through the slow-motion camera. This exhibit is a great way to get some energy out of kids, and have fun while doing it! For the dinosaur lovers in your family, don't miss the "Life Then and Now Hall" upstairs. Compare ancient dinosaur bones to today's animals, watch real scientists at work in the Paleo Lab, and even show your dino moves at a disco dance party. Other notable and exciting exhibits include the Earthquake Shake where you can simulate a real earthquake in the "Dynamic Earth Hall," and stargazing in the "Expanding Universe Hall." There are plenty of things to learn and do at the Perot, and I highly recommend including it in your trip to Dallas!
