  • I had so much fun with my family here. My 9-month-old really liked the water area and the area with the blocks. The Clifford the Big Red Dog exhibit was also a big hit - and so many cute photo opportunities! We loved all of the exhibits and plan on going back to see Curious George in the fall. Will remember next time that it's $7 to park in the museum lot.

  • Great museum for kids. We left at closing time and our 4 yr old daughter loved it so much that she left crying because she wanted to stay. There's so much to do and a lot of learning for kids and adults. We loved it so much that we became members during our first visit.

  • My kids love visiting the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History when we are in town every couple years. The museum isn't huge compared to the Perot, but I like it better because the crowds are more manageable. My 10 and 7 year old kids spent over an hour in the innovation studios area alone. My four year old and his same age cousin had a blast in the Dora and Diego special exhibit. In all we stated about three and a half hours and only covered half the museum. I was a bit disappointed in the courtyard water play area. It needs a major update. It is looking pretty run down. My kids usually love the outdoor dino dig area, but we didn't have time to stop there this time. We went in the morning, just a few days before all the local kids were out on summer break so it wasn't very crowded.

  • This is such a fun place.for kids year round with hands on learning centers​. Exhibits are changed out throughout the year to keep kids interested in learning . I have to give only four stars though as I am disappointed on the remodel of the cattle/cowboy portion. They have made it feel like art museum the is sterile feeling and took the rugged cowboy childlike wonder out of it. Also where did the riding horses herding game go? Whoever did the redesign did not have young kids in mind.

  • I went there during the special Harry Potter exhibit. It was great! A large IMAX theater offers comfortable seating. You can also (always) hold animals such as hedgehogs, 🐢, 🐍, and ferrets. During the Harry Potter exhibit, you can play Quidditch and other fun things too!
