We had a fabulous day at the Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas over the weekend. We very much appreciate the Perot Museum hosting our family. As always all opinions are my own. Looking for a fun family outing in Dallas over the holidays? See all the fun there is at the Perot Museum! We were so excited to visit the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. My husband and kids alike ooed and ahed over the building itself, and that’s before we even walked inside! Ha ha.
In the entry as we stood in line for our passes the kids were already enamored. Every time someone moved the balls on the ceiling would move up. They could have played here all day. I soon found out that is how the day would go. There is so much to do everywhere; I had to keep urging them along in order to see the entire museum before we gave out. No wonder so many of my friends have season passes!
We learned about the Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence in this neat exhibition. There was so much wonderful information about unique and interesting glowing sea life. From a captivating journey through the world of “living light” to exploring larger-than-life replicas of glowing mushrooms, vampire squid, flickering fireflies, and fluorescent corals there is so much to see! I especially loved seeing Flash Light Fish that are found in deep sea. They actually use lights to communicate, so cool.
On the Saturday we went there were tons of activities for the kids throughout. I was surprised. I expected one floor to be kid friendly and the rest to be more adult focused. At the Perot Museum there is ample learning and hands on activity throughout the museum.
Our favorite activity in the bird section was this flight simulator. It actually uses your motions to determine how the bird on the screen flies. All the kids were taking a turn. I’ll tell you a secret. I was dying to try it, but I’d a had to fight off all the children.
To get around the Perot Museum’s holiday happenings, visitors are encouraged to start from the bottom and move their way to the top. We spent about five hours at the museum and the kids would have stayed all day. It was the adults that gave out on them. Oh to have that much energy again!
