Family Fun at the Perot Museum8:27:00 AM
A couple weeks ago we headed over to Dallas on a field trip to check out the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. I have been wanting to visit since it opened and just hadn't had the chance...Well we did try and go over Christmas break but the day we went it was sold out!
My personal favorite exhibit is the Tom Energy Hall, which is a look into how drilling rigs work. Since fracking and drilling is all over Texas, it was fun seeing equipment and 3D models up close.
My little guy would have spent most of his time in the sports exhibit. He got to throw a football while high-speed cameras captured his motion. Then we watched his motion next to a NFL quarterback to see the difference. This was seriously the coolest thing! You can also pick an animal, Olympic or professional athlete and run a race against them. It was also fun to see all the dads try and out run a NFL running back.
Once we visited all the exhibit halls, we headed down to grab a snack at the cafe and sat outside on the plaza while Carson played. It's such a great museum that both kids and adults can enjoy. Can't wait to go back!
Do your kids enjoy museums? What exhibits do they like the most?
