Perot Museum of Nature and Science
My family loves being outside, so visiting the Perot Museum of Nature and Science was a great experience. Visiting the virtual T-Rex was a favorite of ours. Have you ever seen 4 little kids excited to be up close and personal with a dinosaur? There are 11 exhibits for the whole family to get involved with!
Reunion Tower GeO-Deck
This is a really neat attraction to visit while in Dallas. If my kids had it their way, they would visit this one every day for the rest of the time we are in Dallas. While at the Reunion Tower GeO-Deck, you can see a 360-degree view of Dallas. Do you know how cool that is? Dallas is a huge city, so being able to see a view like this was amazing. There are tons of other activities to keep your kids busy, like an observation deck that lets you see for miles in any direction.
The Sixth Floor Museum
Isn’t this such an awesome name for a museum? I love teaching my kids about the presidents of the United States. The fact that we got an up-close and personal with President John F Kennedy! We were able to learn about his visit to Dallas, his assassination, life, and so much more.
We also go to stand at the window that Lee Harvey Oswald stood at when he shot Kennedy. We were able to look out and see the X on the ground where Kennedy was assassinated. While it is a very intense experience, it's also very rare to be able to step back into history like that.
George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum
I shared with you our passion for presidents' libraries. The George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum has so much information to share with the world. I loved our visit here and learned more about President Bush. The four themes that represent him are freedom, opportunity, compassion, and responsibility.
When you grab the Dallas CityPASS, you can visit these 4 venues or the Dallas Zoo/ Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. We’ve had a chance to visit all and enjoyed each visit. I encourage you to purchase your CityPASS and get to know the city of Dallas a little more.
