The Perot Museum of Nature and Science opened December 1, 2012 and is the result of the merger of the Dallas Museum of Natural History, The Science Place and the Dallas Children's Museum into one interactive building.

Here, families can learn together and individuals can take a break from their daily routines to ponder the vast mysteries of science. Visitors can wander, either to get lost or to find their way, as they discover something new and fascinating. The Museum reminds us that the universe is grander than ourselves, older than we can fathom, and that the world actually revolves around the sun, and not us. It inspires our community through exhibits, marvels, and presentations. It exhilarates and entertains visitors of all ages... because after all, it's never too late to learn.

With a rich history as a research and collecting institution as well as a hands-on center for exploration and discovery, the Perot Museum works to achieve its mission to "inspire minds through nature and science" through a variety of educational activities including in-depth permanent exhibits, traveling exhibits, interactive discovery stations, on-site school programs, school outreach programs, camps, films, and weekend activities for adults, children and families. Since opening to the public, the Museum has served nearly 5 million people, including more than 2 million children.
"I cannot thank the Perot Museum enough for bringing such high quality educational experiences to [our school]. I feel like our students have learned a great deal and would never have the opportunity to see, hear, and touch all of the things your teachers brought without the generosity of your organization. Thank you!" - Director, Local Preschool

"Amazing experience as many of our students had NEVER been to a museum, and many never even into downtown Dallas." - Second Grade Teacher

"My students were able to use microscopes which we have no access to at our campus. We did wait in line at the Bio Lab so they could experience what it's like to be a scientist." - Third Grade Teacher

"They all find exhibits that speak to them and what they are interested in to learn more about. They each take away additional knowledge that they did not have before, or at the very least are able to interact with it in a way that simply 'knowing' something does not do." - High School Teacher
