Perot Museum of Nature and Science
This unique museum inspires a little curiosity in us all. The urban planning architect guru Thom Mayne made sure this was a building you would never forget—on the inside or out. There are 11 permanent exhibitions that explore sports, earth, energy, and dinosaurs from a scientific point of view. There also is a 297-seat theater, museum shop, and cafe. There are even sleepovers for kids who are up for a thrilling evening of science shenanigans.
