Posted on Mar 5, 2021 By Ashley Turner
If you're coming to Dallas this Spring Break, safely plan your time in the city visiting Dallas' top attractions. The CityPASS lets you visit the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Reunion Tower's GeO-Deck, The Sixth Floor Museum, and the Dallas Zoo (which is usually an or option with the George W. Bush Museum – we can't wait for them to reopen!) for the low price of $31 for children and $47 for adults – a deal that simply can't be beat!
Each attraction has safely reopened their doors with plenty of health and safety protocols to keep you and your family safe during your visit. Here is what's happening at each of these attractions during Spring Break!
Perot Museum of Nature and Science
The Perot Museum's latest exhibition, The Science of Guinness World Records will make its U.S. debut beginning on March 6. This engaging exhibit will challenge and encourage all ages to go behind the scenes and learn more about some of the world's most fascinating accomplishments. Check out the largest Pac-Man videogame, the longest mustache ever, and learn more about the story behind the record holder for most consecutive pinky pull-ups, just to name a few! After visiting this impressive exhibit, the museum's permanent exhibit halls are just an escalator ride away.
Note: The Science of Guinness World Records requires a surcharge of $8 for adults (13-64) and seniors (65+), $6 for youth (2-12) and free for children under 2. Guests can redeem their CityPASS by simply presenting their booklet or digital voucher on-site at the Box Office.
The Perot's Spring Break hours are as follows:
Thursday, March 4 through Sunday, March 21:
10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Saturday
11 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Sunday
The museum will close at 5 p.m., March 13 and 14
Visit the largest zoological experience in Texas with a trip to the Dallas Zoo. Located in South Dallas, the zoo is home to plentiful animal experiences that make for a fun family outing. Stop by the giraffe feeding ridge, or make your way to the the Wonders of the Wild wildlife show. There are also hourly animal encounters at the zoo's all-new Animals in Action pop-up experiences.
For even more animal fun, you can book a visit with the zoo's Virtual Animal Adventures Program where you'll meet Nigel, the prehensile-tailed porcupine!
The Zoo is currently open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. After purchasing your CityPASS, you can call the zoo to schedule your visit.
