Fort Worth Museum Reopens

While Dallas celebrates the opening of its new performing arts campus on October 12 (, 40 miles away the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History reopens on November 20
in a new building by Mexico City architects Legorreta & Legorreta. Located near the Amon
Carter, Kimbell, and Modern Art museums, and within Fort Worth’s Cultural District, the
brick-and-glass structure combines a children’s museum, planetarium, renovated Omni IMAX
theater, and new interactive exhibits devoted to dinosaurs that roamed in Texas and the history of
energy production, plus a series of interior courtyards with bold, brightly colored, and whimsical
sculptures. A distinctive 76-foot-tall glass tower marks the entrance of the 133,000-square-foot
museum, acting as a focal point for the campus and emitting a golden glow that Legorreta describes
as an “urban lantern.”
