The main Perot Museum branch does have several levels of themed exhibitions. The parking for the museum is limited and non-museum parking can be expensive, so that is something to watch out for. The museum may also be closed to walk-in admission at certain times, so going ahead and getting a reservation would not be amiss. The permanent exhibits themselves are well-done and quite informative. It is designed for non-adults, but there should be enough to see to pass the time in one visit, but probably not two.

Science! Nature! Architecture! If those three words don't convince you to visit, then maybe these eighty or so words will. This is a great place to bring any size group, especially children. But it's not just a place for kids. There are certain evenings when it's 21 and up only. They have alcohol and encourage the adults to enjoy the museum while they mingle. There are countless cool science gadgets to play with, hundreds of intricate models and skeletons of animals, and a mind-bending architectural layout that will surprise you at every turn.

Opened in December 2012, this 180,000-square-foot facility, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne, is itself a feat of scientific ingenuity. His firm Morphosis Architects set a goal of creating an attractive urban environment that also adheres to green principles. Hence features like a 54-foot, continuous-flow escalator contained in a glass-enclosed, tubelike structure that extends outside the building—along with landscaping (courtesy of Talley Associates) that includes a roofscape planted with drought-tolerant species, an interactive water feature, and a “Leap Frog Forest” of glowing amphibians.

This museum is a dramatic concrete and glass cube by Thom Mayne slated to open in January 2013, planted its outdoor areas entirely with vegetation native to Texas, such as weeping willows and buffalo grass.
