The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a natural history and science museum with two campuses in Dallas, Texas: Victory Park and Fair Park. The Victory Park campus museum was named in honor of Margot and Ross Perot. To see this iconic Dallas museum for yourself, take the DART to Victory Station.
The Perot Museum's Victory Park campus is a 180,000 square foot containing six floors towering at 14 stories high. The museum has five floors which are accessible to the public, 11 exhibit halls, and six learning labs.
The Victory Park building was designed by Thom Mayne and his firm, Morphosis Architects. The building was conceptualized to be a large cube floating over a landscaped base. This design was created to inspire awareness of science through an immersive and interactive environment. The building's design exemplifies scientific principles and is used as a teaching tool to demonstrate engineering, sustainability, and technology at work.
The Victory Park campus contains the following permanent exhibit halls: the Moody Family Children's Museum, Sports, Discovering Life, Being Human, Texas Instruments Engineering and Innovation, The Rees-Jones Foundation Dynamic Earth, Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals, Tom Hunt Energy, T. Boone Pickens Life Then and Now, Expanding Universe, and Rose Hall of Birds. The museum regularly rotates out its temporary exhibits, so check out what they're offering the next time you visit!
The museum at Fair Park is located inside the Museum of Natural History. The Fair park location features exhibits such as Mineral Majesty, Light Play, and historical dioramas.
