The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, which opened on Dec. 1, 2012, offers dynamic experiences to stimulate curiosity in visitors of all ages. With 180,000 square feet of space, standing 170 feet tall (equivalent to an average 14-story building) the revolutionary Perot Museum extends beyond the typical "museum" perception. The extraordinary building and outdoor space serves as a living science lesson, offering provocative illustrations of engineering, technology and conservation.



Five floors house 11 permanent exhibit halls containing state-of-the-art video and 3-D computer animation with thrilling, life-like simulations where visitors can exercise their brains through hands-on activities, interactive kiosks and educational games. The lower level of the cube houses a state-of-the-art, modular traveling exhibit hall; an education wing with six learning labs; a flexible space auditorium; and a children's museum including outdoor play space and a courtyard.



The plinth level houses the Main Lobby complete with a 35-foot Malawisaurus fossil; access to a roof deck; the Café; a 300-seat, multimedia Theater; and the Store. Inside and out, the Museum features natural sustainability and environmental friendliness including a rainwater collection system, LED lighting and solar-powered water heating.



The museum is located in Victory Park at the corner of Field Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway in the heart of Dallas.
