Perot Museum of Nature and Science
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is the latest entry along the Woodall Rodgers corridor, taking the enormously popular museum from its space at Fair Park to an ultra-modern building designed by Thom Mayne and Morphosis Architects. The building aims to be environmentally-friendly, with elements designed to satisfy the standards of three separate green groups. The museum's mission is evident inside and out, with native Texas plants lining both the walkways and the roof of lower areas. Inside, features include a skeleton of a Malawisaurus, multiple halls focused on different topics, a theater showing both 2D and 3D films and more.
The museum is opened on December 1, 2012, more than a month ahead of schedule.
