Enjoy a Day of Science at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science!

If you are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and you are looking for something EXTRAORDINARY to do with your family, please check out the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. This museum is truly a GEM for Texans and visitors to Texas!

Also, this museum has a reciprocal partnership with other museums in the area (as well as museums around the nation). We had FREE admission as a result of our membership with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. YES! 

As a mom, I love the fact that they have themed activities. In fact, I thought that these were JUST for the children, but parents can enjoy the activities as well! I sure did! From art activities and reading to science trivia and "science on the spot". These are themed-activities that the entire family can experience.

When you enter the museum, you take the MULTI-STORY escalator from the main lobby. This escalator allows your family to have a superb view of the downtown Dallas!

The first rooms that you experience are the solar system-focused rooms! These are SUPER engaging!

Then, after you learn about the planets and stars, you learn about our prehistoric past by examining FOSSILS! This collection is TOP NOTCH and very engaging for ALL AGES!

Did I forget to mention that the exhibits are VERY interactive and learning through touch is ENCOURAGED!  Look at this exhibit on bird bones! 

After you learn about bird bones, you can BUILD your own bird! Seriously, where else can you BUILD your own bird???

Now, back to those dinosaurs  - mammoth style! You can also discover WHERE these fossils were found throughout Texas. Who knows - maybe you are walking on history when you walk to school and work!

Next, let's learn about gems and rocks. This part is always engaging for me (as mom), because my father always used to take me to a museum in East Texas that was focused on oil and rocks. I know my rocks! :) Plus, through the Perot Museum, I can teach my daughter about the importance of natural resources. SUPER important!

The interactive exhibits focused on the human body are MEMORABLE! I actually learned a lot about my OWN body! 

Yes! ROBOTS! We need our young scientists to learn about the importance of robots so our children can design the technology we need for the future. Think about it. Children need this experience!

Did I mention that our family was ENGAGED in Science Trivia? It was great and we learned a lot! Who knew that we would continue to use the knowledge that we gained in our science classes....from 30 YEARS AGO!

We even WON our prize! This was FRAMED!!!!

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!
