The Perot is a wonderful field trip for the scientifically minded homeschooler. The most benefit to the student is, in my opinion, in becoming a member of the museum. This enables you to focus on one area of the museum per visit and get the most out of the incredible opportunities for hands on learning in each zone.

The Being Human hall even has a lab where the students can conduct biology experiments, which periodically change out for variety.

All in all an excellent field trip location for all ages, probably of most interest to second grade and up for maximum appreciation of the material.

This is a MUST see! We have been twice and love it. It is worth the cost!

It's a great museum. My son enjoys it. However, it's always crowded with school field trips. We usually try to go there after lunch hour to avoid the crowds.
