Visit the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, now open after 10 years of planning and more than $185 million in fundraising. The museum’s 11 permanent exhibit halls are:

Moody Family Children's Museum, Lamar Hunt Family Sports Hall, Discovering Life Hall, Being Human Hall, Texas Instruments Engineering and Innovations Hall, The Rees-Jones Foundation Dynamic Earth Hall, Tom Hunt Energy Hall, Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall, Expanding Universe Hall, T. Boone Pickens Life Then and Now Hall, and the Rose Hall of Birds.

The Moody Family Children’s Museum has a play place crafted from the Dallas skyline, a miniature Dallas Farmer’s Market complete with reusable shopping bags and a flower cart, and the Great Trinity Forest with a kid-sized campsite and displays of live insects and reptiles. Step inside the enclosed baby and toddler park for some playtime with your little ones or head outside to uncover what’s buried in the Little Bend Fossil Dig.

This venue can accommodate children with special needs.

Visit for information about handicap parking, entrances and exhibits, wheelchairs and mobility scooters, children's strollers and wagons, service animals and more.

For guests in wheelchairs or for those with limited mobility, the Hoglund Foundation Theater is equipped with seating for wheelchairs along with companion seating. Devices for closed captioning and descriptive audio are available on select films when they are provided by the distributor.
