Admittedly, this Summer hasn’t been as sweltering as in years past, but that doesn’t mean I want to spend lots of time in 90+ degree temperatures either!
We were looking for something to do that had air conditioning. The Perot Museum of Nature & Science has called to me ever since I saw its massive cube-like structure being built along Woodall Rodgers Freeway. The museum opened in late 2012 and it truly is an interesting place to wander around whether you’re young or old.
You can purchase tickets online in advance or in person once you arrive, but keep in mind that some exhibits & films have certain time slots to prevent crowding so it’s often best to check the website before you visit so you have a plan of action.
We were advised to take the series of escalators to the very top floor and work our way down. The views outside are stunning.
I didn’t take many photos of the actual exhibits because the lighting was often not conducive or there were people crowded around. Also, why ruin the fun for future visitors!
My favorite museum exhibits have always been anything dinosaur, so I did snap a few photos of the resident skeletons.
After a few hours, we wrapped up our visit with a quick look in the museum shop. Definitely a lot to choose from. The Perot Museum was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.
