Fort Worth Museum Of Science And History, Fort Worth Reviews
This museum is definitely designed for children! My husband and I went together, and we enjoyed it but would have had so much more fun with our toddler in tow. We brought her along the second time, and enjoyed a remarkable family outing learning about physics, fossils, and gross things! I would recommend this for a family bonding day or if you have a playful desire, for sure.
Great place for ALL ages kids & adults. Something for everyone to get lost in from having so much fun. Entertaining & even more so educational. The variety is amazing. They constantly change out the upstairs area which is another reason aside from the amazing membership prices that it’s totally worth getting a membership there. Employees are extremely helpful and the place is always very clean.
Mostly exhibits for children and a lot of the material geared at an adult level consists of material curated by beef and oil industry to paint themselves in a good light. For example there is a cattle exhibit that spends a good amount of its text talking about how forward-thinking and environmentally friendly the beef industry is and always has been. There is a 7-minute ride devoted to where natural gas comes from and the last three are about showering adulation on a businessman who perfected fracking techniques to extract it. Pretty disheartening to see what should be a purely educational place used as a mouthpiece for industry. There are some neat exhibits for kids, though, with some interactive quizzes and science bits.
We had an afternoon to kill while traveling in Texas. Fort Worth is a lovely town with lots to see and do. This museum is a great addition, and has a ton of fun little side items that will keep kids busy, and give lots of hands on experiences to enjoy. We could have spent a lot more time.
Everything about the FWMSH is delightful for kids. I love getting to take my nieces and nephews there! They have a blast and its always a huge win. **There isn't a large selection of food on the menu in the cafe, but the adult grilled cheese and salad option is really quite a steal. ** and all the food is quite delicious! So you can't really go wrong. That being said, it's really a kids museum. There is not a whole lot there for grownups to enjoy themselves unless you're going to see a show. Sometimes the touring exhibits are really impressive and considerably more oriented for grownups.
