The holidays are upon us, and families have gathered to celebrate the season together. But just because you love your family doesn't mean you want be cooped up with them 24-7 for the next week.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is coming to the rescue. It's been one of the hottest tickets in town since it opened on December 1, so in order to accommodate as many visitors as possible, the museum is extending its hours almost every day through January 6.
The most notable extensions are December 26-30 and January 1-3, when the museum stays open until 9 pm every night. It also opens at 10 am December 22 and 29 and January 6, giving you two extra hours over normal Sundays. However, the museum closes at 3 pm December 24 and 31.
Museum officials recommend buying tickets in advance online instead of taking your chances with what could be a very long line at the counter. Cranky kids and exhausted grandparents are nobody's idea of a good time.
