The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is gearing up for new activities for the Spring of 2015. The spring line of amazing new experiences is in full bloom with jam-packed fun for kids and adults. The highlight of this season’s new experiences is The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, but visitors can also enjoy Engineers Week in February, the Spring Break Discovery Champs, adults-only social science event, 3D movies and so much more. Here is a look at the top activities for the Perot Museum coming this spring.
Social Science Nights
For adults only, the Social Science night will be taking place on Apr 17th from 7-11pm for museum exploration fun. You can bring a date or make it a girls’ night but leave the kids with a sitter and enjoy a fun night out. There will be cocktails, performances, engaging discussions and unique inventions to see. The theme for the evening is “mysterious.” Tickets will cost $13-$18 and you must be 21 to attend.
The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes
Starting on Valentine’s Day until May 10, 2015, the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes will be available at the museum. As one of the most beloved and recognized figures in literature and popular culture, the Sherlock Holmes exhibit is sure to be a huge hit this spring.
You’ll get to learn about clues and observations that scientific experts use to solve mysterious crimes. These techniques were created by former doctor and later author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who actually revolutionized the practice of forensic science. The exhibit is bilingual and will feature a set of 3D films to choose from in the 297 seat state-of-the-art theater.
The movies will include:
From February 23-28, you can check out Engineers Week at Perot. You can build, break and create through interactive demonstrations and experiments. It’s fun for all ages and free of charge.
During Spring Break, bring the kids in grades K-6 to learn detective skills and problem-solving skills. Kids ages 3-4 can go to the half-day Discovery Camp Jr. version as well. It will be a week of investigating and exploration.
These are the highlights for this spring’s new additions to the Perot Museum located at 2201 North Field Street in Dallas.
