There is SO much to see and do in the Forth Worth Museum of Science and History, we almost don't know where to start!
Did you know that there are museums WITHIN a museum!
You see, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History actually began as a small children's museum all the way back in 1941 (that's how long they have been entertaining kids for!). So, within the museum itself is a whole other museum - the Fort Worth Children's Museum! This area is JUST for those kids aged up to 8 years, where they can play with activities perfectly suited for them!
THEN there is the Cattle Raisers Museum - another "museum within a museum"! This 10,000 square foot exhibition is all about preserving and celebrating that vital Texas industry of cattle. Kids can look back all the way to the 1850s and begin the journey of the cattle industry right to the present day. It's pretty eye opening!
Then, of course, there is everything else to see in the main museum. There are permanent exhibits which you can keep going back to - such as the DinoLabs and Energy Blast. DinoLabs bring kids the amazing story of the North Texas dinosaurs, with full dinosaur skeletons and a dig site which replicates an actual field site where dinosaurs are found!
Then kids can blast their way through Energy Blast - where interactive exhibits and learning stations allow them to explore the world of energy. It's pretty amazing what they will learn!
From the earth to the sky, the Noble Planetarium lets you explore that big world of space! They have programs and story time which can teach the whole family about what is all around you in the universe.
