Embark on Your Own Scientific Adventure

Since opening its doors to the public in late 2012, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has prided itself in mixing natural history collections with modern, man-made science and technology to educate and entertain the masses, from early childhood to lifelong learners.

The museum originally began as a merger between the Dallas Museum of Natural History, The Science Place, and the Dallas Children’s Museum. It has since combined the exhibits, themes, and lessons from its predecessors to strive toward one goal: to inspire minds through nature and science.

Traveling to the Museum

The Perot Museum is conveniently located near the heart of downtown Dallas, making it an easily accessible destination from nearly anywhere in the city. However, if you’re coming in from out of town, tackling the unfamiliar roads of this sprawling metropolis is no small feat. We recommend booking an 18-passenger minibus rental if you’re venturing to the museum from within city limits. Due to their compact size and roomy interior, the minibuses we charter are perfect for navigating through busy streets. For large groups traveling long distances from cities like San Antonio, Austin, or Houston, a 56-passenger charter bus will likely be the right fit for you. Whether you need a small shuttle or a large fleet, National Charter Bus can find the right ride for your group. You can even include amenities like WiFi, power outlets, reclining seats, PA systems, and much more, ensuring that all passengers arrive are refreshed and comfortable when they arrive at the museum.

Bus parking is located in Lot C, which can be quite a hike from the museum’s front doors. To avoid the long walk, coordinate with your driver to be dropped off at the front entrance. Your driver can look after whatever belongings are left on the bus while you wander the exhibits and pick you up at the entrance when your group is ready to leave. When you book with a company like National Charter Bus, you won’t have to worry about circling the parking lot, hunting for the perfect spot. Instead, you can focus on the fun-filled day of discovery ahead of you while we handle the rest.
