The Perot Museum is a science museum in Dallas, Texas.

The museum is named in honor of Margot and Ross Perot, whose adult children have collectively donated over $50,000,000 to the Museum Foundation. Ross Perot was a well-known and respected businessman, billionaire and politician during his lifetime.

The Perot’s building is an architectural masterpiece in cement. Spread over 180,000 square feet over six floors, the museum has 11 permanent and ever-changing temporary exhibits. In addition, there is a café, a museum shop and an auditorium with a cinema.

Thanks to its architecture, the outdoor area of the museum can also be visited on the hottest Texan summer days. For this purpose, a water channel was created during construction, which flows into a pond – the constant flow of water ensures that the air is pleasantly cooled.

A visit to the Perot Museum is like a living history lesson. With a total of 11 permanent exhibitions, which revolve around natural history, visitors learn everything about the cosmos and our solar system, including nature and landscapes and how they were formed by the forces of nature. Other exhibitions deal with fossil energies, such as oil and gas, and ecological change.

The exhibitions are lively and include videos and interactive exhibits, which should also be interesting for children. Be sure to stop by The Hoglund Foundation Theater, the museum’s 4K cinema, which regularly screens changing films about the fascinating wildlife.
