Science Park with leap frog forest – Mark Knight Photography

We’re ready to be inspired this weekend with the opening we’ve been waiting for - The Perot Museum of Nature & Science!  Luckily, since we’re sure this will be an event that’s noted on many agendas, the museum will be hosting extended hours on opening weekend.  There will be a ribbon-cutting at 9:30 a.m. Saturday on the outdoor plaza- we hope to see you there!

Extended hours opening weekend:

10 a.m. - midnight:  Saturday, December 1st
9 a.m. - 5 pm.: Sunday, December 2nd

Regular hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon - 5 p.m. with the exception of Thanksgiving (closed), Christmas Eve (closed at 3 p.m.), Christmas (closed), and New Year’s Eve (closed at 3 p.m.). Please visit for the latest info on special holidays, extended hours and unexpected closings.

Be sure to check out some of our favorite images of the space below.  It’s truly amazing!
