There's no need to fret when your brain gets bored with the day-to-day routine. Down the road and through the streets of the city is the perfect medicine for a meandering mind. When your brain needs a boost and a dash of excitement, our real estate agents recommend spending a few hours at the Dallas Perot Museum.
11 Halls of Amazing Exhibits
Our universe is filled with trillions of stars to explore, millions of diseases to discover, and thousands of dinosaurs to uncover. The museum's mission is to encourage the next generation of scientists to reach beyond what is known and discover what is possible. Toward that goal, the curators at the Perot Museum have done an amazing job of crafting exhibitions that stimulate the synapses.
Within the museum's 11 exhibition halls, you can delve into the mysteries of the human body within the Being Human Hall, or drill into the future of energy within the Tom Hunt Energy Hall. Each room is designed to help children and adults understand the science that supports everything from modern medicine to space exploration. There is so much to see and discover that you will need several visits to see it all.
Special Events and Exhibits
The Perot Museum is famous for hosting some of the area's most fascinating special exhibitions. Their latest exhibition is "The Art of the Brick," and it runs from now through August 18th. The exhibition features some truly ingenious creations that you won't want to miss.
Each exhibit is a work of art unto itself and reflects the creative flair of some of the world's most renowned artists. Crafted brick by brick, each sculpture is a tribute to mankind and the magic of LEGO®. It's a perfect place to spend an afternoon with your family and discover just how many things you can build with a handful of LEGOs and a spoonful or two of imagination.
Spend a Night at the Museum
Ben Stiller isn't the only one who can unlock the magic that moves about the museum at night. The Perot Museum's "Snore and Explore" sleepovers offer live science shows, 3-D films, and plenty of healthy late-night snacks to help their brains absorb everything they are learning. Most sleepovers start at 6:30 pm and last until 8 am the next morning. Throughout the night, instructors help children explore the mysteries of the universe, dig deep beneath the earth's crust, and expand their horizons into new universes and future careers.
Visiting the Museum
The museum is open Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Because there is so much to see, their last entry is at 4 pm. The museum is open year-round and is only closed on Christmas, Thanksgiving, and a handful of fundraising evenings throughout the fall months.
The museum offers fantastic discounts for teachers, police officers, and soldiers. It's their way of saying thanks to the men and women who do so much to make Dallas the best city in the state.
Many families in Dallas choose to become members of the museum. Members receive special invitations to "members-only" events, free general admission, and discounts on special exhibits when they pass through the area.
