Favorite Places: Perot Museum

perot museum dallas

This weekend we attended the grand opening of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas. The building is amazing. It’s located right off the highway, so I’ve been watching the building develop over the past year or so. I only recently found out what it was, and once I did, I immediately wanted to join. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is one of Jason and Jenna’s favorite places to visit in the DFW area, so I had no doubt that this would hold a similar appeal.

The museum includes several exhibit halls, including sections dedicated to dinosaurs and space discovery. I hope we’ll explore these areas more as J+J get older, but for now, our main destination will likely be the Moody Family Children’s Museum. Jason and Jenna would have stayed all day if they could.

Here are a few scenes from our new favorite spot in Dallas:
