Baby Exploration

Pint-sized attractions at the Perot Museum

We could seriously hug the planners behind the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science for including so many tot-minded attractions. Opening this Saturday in Victory Park, the highly anticipated museum will house the Moody Family Children’s Museum on its Lower Level, along with a genius multi-sensory, gazebo-style space called the Baby and Toddler Park. Wee ones ages 5 and under will be able to navigate super-sized mole holes, dig around in a faux dinosaur excavation site, climb a miniature Dallas skyline, and tinker with all sorts of knobs, levers and noisemakers. Parents will especially appreciate the wrap-around seating, open sight-lines and stroller stations. Other highlights include the musical stairs and floor (between the Lower Level and Main Lobby), 88 dancing water molecules (Main Lobby), and the musical forest and cascading stream (Science Park). And starting in January, there will also be plenty of creative workshops for young ones, like Scribbles and Dribbles, which is now open for registration.
