Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Interested in moving to Dallas? Taking a visit to familiarize yourself with everything the city has to offer?

Dallas is home to many impressive innovative architectural styles and must-see attractions. Built in 2012, The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a beautifully designed building and an inspiring hub for curious minds.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science – The Concept:

Perot Museum of Nature and Science is “located in the planned community of Victory Park, a brownfield reclamation project of developer Ross Perot, Jr., son of Texas billionaire Ross Perot, [and] strives to be a learning place for all ages, a place to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and concrete solutions to today’s problems. Its mission is ‘To inspire minds through nature and science.’ The collection is a consolidation of three separate Dallas museums now under one roof at the edge of the city.” – thoughtco.com

“Five floors house 11 permanent exhibit halls containing state-of-the-art video and 3-D computer animation with thrilling, life-like simulations where visitors can exercise their brains through hands-on activities, interactive kiosks and educational games. The lower level of the cube houses a state-of-the-art, modular traveling exhibit hall; an education wing with six learning labs; a flexible space auditorium; and a children’s museum including outdoor play space and a courtyard.

The plinth level houses the Main Lobby complete with a 35-foot Malawisaurus fossil; access to a roof deck; the Cafe; a 300-seat, multimedia Theater; and the Store. Inside and out, the Museum features natural sustainability and environmental friendliness including a rainwater collection system, LED lighting and solar-powered water heating.” visitdallas.com

The design:

California architect Thom Mayne and his firm Morphosis were commissioned to design the museum.

“At night, the building appears to float, as lights shine out from beneath the concrete cube. Tensioned cables support a ground floor of structural glass in the lobby areas. The science behind the architecture complements the collection inside. ‘By integrating architecture, nature, and technology,’ writes the architect, ‘the building demonstrates scientific principles and stimulates curiosity in our natural surroundings’.” – thoughtco.com

“With 180,000 square feet of space, standing 170 feet tall (equivalent to an average 14-story building) the revolutionary Perot Museum extends beyond the typical “museum” perception. The extraordinary building and outdoor space serves as a living science lesson, offering provocative illustrations of engineering, technology and conservation.” – visitdallas.com


Right in the heart of Dallas, you’ll find the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, located in Victory Park at Field Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
