Adding to the rich architectural legacy of Fort Worth’s Cultural District, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s brand new $80 million facility is dazzling with its bright colors, geometric forms, and abundant natural light. Designed by internationally acclaimed architectural firm Legorreta + Legorreta, the new facility opened in November 2009. To strengthen the museum’s presentation of history, the expansion incorporates a major new center for the Cattle Raisers Museum. Exhibits also include DinoLabs; Paluxysaurus jonesi, the official dinosaur of Texas; the Noble Planetarum; the Fort Worth Children’s Museum; Innovation Studios; six glass-walled spaces near the main entrance offering hands-on demonstrations; and the Omni Imax Theater.
