The Perot Museum of Nature and Science near downtown Dallas is offering free admission to families displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

And with school back in session and summer coming to an end for North Texans, the Perot Museum will celebrate Labor Day weekend with three fun-filled days. From Sept 2-4, guests can enjoy daily “science on the spot” demos, bookworm readings, science trivia and other drop-in activities at select times throughout the Museum, plus kids 5 and under can enjoy paper plate creations in the Moody Family Children’s Museum until 3 p.m.
It’s also the final weekend for Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed, the largest exhibition about the Maya to ever tour the country (closing Labor Day). Visitors can decipher hieroglyphs, build arches, learn cultural and architectural techniques, and explore an underworld cave, nearly 250 authentic artifacts, an ancient burial site, mural room and more. And there’s still time to catch this summer’s 3D films – including Dream Big 3D, Walking With Dinosaurs 3D and Wild Africa 3D.
It’s not too late to sign up for Saturday night’s Wild About the Perot Museum sleepover. Spots fill quickly.
Through Labor Day (Sept. 4), veterans, active and retired U.S. military personnel and first responders will receive complimentary general admission plus $3 off general admission for members of their immediate families (up to six family members). In addition, the Community Partners Ticket Program offers $1 general admission and $1 admission to Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed for guests who qualify based on need.
The Perot Museum will stay open until 6 p.m. through Labor Day. PLEASE NOTE: The Museum will be closed Sept. 5-7 for annual maintenance and will reopen with regular hours Sept. 8.
Take DART’s Blue, Green, Orange or Red line to Akard Station, then walk a half mile down Field Street to the museum.
