Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is nestled within the Fort Worth Cultural District and houses a variety of traveling and permanent exhibitions. Permanent exhibits include DinoLabs and DinoDig, Energy Blast, Fort Worth Children’s Museum, and the Cattle Raisers Museum, a “museum within a museum.” Children under the age of 12 can also experience Innovation Studios – a five glass-walled studio that houses “Inventor,” “Doodler,” “Designer,” “Imaginer,” and “Explorer.” This hands-on area is where imagination, curiosity and creativity are encouraged and nurtured.
The Museum is also home to the Omni IMAX Theater and the Noble Planetarium.
The Omni Theater was the first IMAX Dome in the Southwest, with an eight-story dome and a 120-foot screen—this theater places the audience in the center of the action, producing a sensation much closer to real-life than a conventional movie theater.
The Noble Planetarium is an immersive all-dome video combined with a fiber-optic dual-hemisphere star projector that projects more than 7,000 stars. In the planetarium’s exhibit area, large screens shows up-to-the-minute views of the Sun. On Friday and Saturday nights experience the sights and sounds of a rockin’ Laser Light show with brilliant lasers, images of the universe, and digital animation all set to timeless music favorites.
Shop Too!, the Museum’s store, continues the educational experience and is an extension of the Museum itself. The 3,000-square-foot store features science kits, telescopes, educational toys, DVDs, dinosaur models, fossils, robotic and technology products and hand-made jewelry, as well as an extensive book department. There is something for everyone and at every price point, plus many one-of-a-kind articles.
