I’ve been to science museums in Portland OR, Shreveport LA, Orange CA, and Los Alamos NM. This was by FAR the best!!! Total package for the 2 of us with IMAX, Planetarium, and museum was $45.

My kids really enjoyed this place. It's like many little museums in one. They have a children's area where they can role play: shopping, baby nursery, trains. They also have a craft area, brain game area, how your mind perceives light, color, and lines. The...More

Everyone needs to see this place. It is great and you come away feeling you really are so much more knowledgeable about Ft. Worth. Have not been in awhile, because I have already been here 3-4 times! Love this place.
