Description

In 2006, the Dallas Museum of Natural History and The Science Place merged into one institution. The Natural History Museum, founded in 1936, is collections-based and research-driven. It has a vast collection of rare and extinct wildlife; rocks and minerals; and the first mounted dinosaur in Texas. Archaeologists and paleontologists ensure the continued growth of each intricate exhibit as well as a deeper understanding of what it represents. Permanent exhibits include a paleontology lab, a wildlife diorama, Lagoon Nature Walk, and Prehistoric Texas. The Science Place, founded in 1946 as the Dallas Health Museum, takes a hands-on approach to learning. Exhibits include a dental gallery, dinosaur dig, physics gallery, medical gallery, electric theater and laser lab. The planetarium produces programs exploring the far reaches of space. The IMAX theater features true adventures in a larger-than-life format.
