The Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Gasp! I LOVE this place! We were so excited when we heard they moved from Fair Park to this beautiful location. It’s absolutely amazing inside. Hannah and Noah’s eyes were as big as could be when we walked up to the entrance.

The green frogs you see glow in the dark at night!

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is unveiled in a media tour in Dallas on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.  (Lara Solt/The Dallas Morning News) 628x471
There are 11 permanent exhibits including Moody Family Children’s Museum, Sports Hall, Discovering Life Hall, Being Human Hall, Texas Instruments Engineering and Innovation Hall, The Rees-Jones Foundation Dynamic Earth Hall, Tom Hunt Energy Hall, Lydia Hill Gems and Minerals Hall, Expanding Universe Hall, T. Boone Pickens Life Then and Now Hall, and the Rose Hall of Birds which is the top level of the museum. Our absolute favorites were the children’s museum, the dinosaurs, and the Earth Hall. We are very interested in weather, animals from a long time ago, and playing! Some stuff was too big to do for my littles but they hung in there and did so good! We had lunch half way through and then saw the remaining two levels. Note to self: bring lunch next time! The café will break the bank!!

This was great because we are constantly talking about the body, cells and science (mommy is studying nursing). I was so excited when Hannah was able to see science of this nature first hand! She wants to be a doctor!

The kids and I stayed in this room for a good 20 minutes watching real life footage from a couple of planets and learning all about them! It was totally awesome :)

All of the fossils in these pictures were found in Dallas! Proving that their used to be ocean life in Texas!
