Perot Museum of Nature and Science

2201 N. Field St.
Dallas, TX 75201
Best Of
The Perot Museum, which offers some of the coolest modern architecture around as well as the craziest escalator you’ve ever seen, has attracted international attention since its opening in late 2012. Tons of interactive exhibits, from an earthquake simulator to a planetarium to racing a dinosaur, mean it’s constantly swarmed with rambunctious kids, so try to time your visit when most of them will be stuck in school -- like late on weekday afternoons or during the special adults-only evenings.
