Visit The Perot Museum's Dino Fest on August 31st and September 1st

My family looks forward to the Perot Museum's Dino Fest every year. When we first moved to Texas, my husband planned a trip to the Perot Museum with my oldest son. Their first trip coincided with Dino Days!  I remember their enthusiasm when they came home to tell me about all of the amazing things that they experienced. My son was only 3 years old at the time. He had the biggest smile and brightest eyes as he told me about his visit, including the opportunity to dig for fossils and get a dinosaur tattoo.  The visit included magical childhood memories -- there were so many big things that my son had only read about in books that the Perot Museum brought to life.  Here is a photo from the visit several years ago. (He's so tiny!)

We've been back many times since then, but Dino Fest is a truly special time that you'll want to mark on your calendar! Let me share more details.

  • What: The Perot Museum's two-day Dino Fest 
  • When: Labor Day weekend - Aug. 31-Sept.
