A Museum to inspire the life-long learner in all of us
There are still trillions of stars to identify. Millions of diseases to cure. Countless dinosaurs to uncover. Who will seek out these unknowns? We built a museum to change the way kids see their futures. A place to help them become the next generation of scientists, robot engineers, mathematicians, technology experts, and more.
The Perot Museum is a place where families can learn together and individuals can take a break from their daily routines to ponder the vast mysteries of science. Visitors can wander, either to get lost or to find their way, as they discover something new and fascinating.
The Museum reminds us that the universe is grander than ourselves, older than we can fathom, and that the world actually revolves around the sun, and not us. It inspires our community through exhibits, marvels, and presentations. It exhilarates and entertains visitors of all ages... because after all, it's never too late to learn.
Though the Victory Park facility opened its doors in December 2012, the institution itself has roots dating back to 1936. The Museum of Nature & Science was the remarkable result of a 2006 merger between the Dallas Museum of Natural History (est. 1936), The Science Place (est. 1946), and the Dallas Children's Museum (est. 1995). Combining collections-based natural history with man's scientific and technological achievements, the Museum presented exciting exhibitions and educational programs for audiences, from early childhood to lifelong learners.
In May 2008, the five adult children of Margot and Ross Perot contributed a $50 million gift. Because of this generous gift, the fundraising efforts surpassed the $100 million mark allowing us to break ground at the Victory Park site in late 2009. The Museum was named the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in honor of the Perot family. The rest is history.
