The Museum of Nature & Science is the result of a 2006 merger, unlike any in the nation, of three cultural institutions—the Dallas Museum of Natural History, the Dallas Children's Museum, and Science Place. As a result of the merger, the new museum has expanded its reach within the community by offering a second facility, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, to address the growing need for science, math and technology education.
The Science Museum of Minnesota worked with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to develop, design and produce interactive and interpretive exhibits for four exhibit galleries in the new facility: the Moody Family Children's Museum (5,000 square feet), the Being Human Hall (5,500 square feet), the Texas Instruments Engineering & Innovation Hall (5,000 square feet) and the Sports Hall (4,000 square feet). The new facility opened to the public on December 1, 2012.
