Experience Dallas : the Perot Museum

Perot Museum of Nature and ScienceProduct disclosureWe love Dallas and have some very favorite places here. The Perot Museum is definitely one of our top favorite places in Dallas for families. Have you been to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science recently? Here are some of the awesome things happening there right now!

This season the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a wonderland of extreme sports, expanded robot arena, and a fantastic line up of 3D films. They are also hosting a “New Year” sleepover and extended holiday hours for you to visit with your families over the holiday break. ( Click here to plan your visit and see special hours)

Traveling exhibits : 2theXtreme: MAthAlive! 

Kaitlyn Perot Museum

Our family got to experience the traveling exhibit 2theXtreme: MAthAlive! This was so fun and really showed our kids how much math they use without even realizing it. We experienced snowboarding, captured 360 degree pictures of ourselves, and had a “binary dance party”. What can I say? Who doesn’t love a great dance party any time any place?

Snowboarding at the Perot MuseumThere were over 40 unique interactive experiences which made the math really come to life for us. Video game, sports, fashion, music, and robotics were all represented in a way that really spoke to our kids and a way that made an impact.

We were also able to enjoy one of the 3D films in the Perot Museum’s 297 seat state of the art digital theater ( to view trailers and see the film schedule go to perotmuseum.org) Last time we were there we saw Pandas.

3D Film Perot Museum

It was our daughter’s favorite film and she has loved studying pandas ever since. On this visit our son picked the movie Robots 3D presented by National Geographic. It was really eye-opening to see what it takes to make a “humanoid” robot.  After seeing the trailer for Galapagos 3D, about discovering the Galapagos Islands, I think both all of us were excited to come back for another 3D film here!

Whether it is your first or fifth visit to the Museum, you can always get a fresh perspective by checking out the Samsung Galaxay Tab 8 tablets that provide interactive experiences on every level.

The tablets highlight unique aspects of the Museum from exhibits to the engineering of the building The tablets are interactive and make it game like for younger visitors. The tablets are free of charge ( one per family) on a first come basis. A driver’s licence is all that is required to check it out.

The Perot Museum is such a great place for family fun anytime of year. It would be perfect for a family gift this Christmas. Learn more about membership, special events, hours, and the newest exhibits at perotmuseum.org. You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter.
