Additional Information

Description

Project Planet is open now open at the Fort Worth Museum of Sciene and History, along with most of the first floor, including two previously closed exhibits, DinoLabs and the Energy Gallery. The Children's Museum remains closed for improvements.

Science has revealed that our planet is warming and our climate is changing at an unprecedented rate. In the coming decades, these forces will present new challenges to Fort Worth, Texas, the nation, and the world.

Through immersive experiences, Project Planet presents guests with the most up-to-date information on what's happening in our world. With historical artifacts, interactive displays, and innovative visualizations, the exhibition will walk guests through some of the most challenging questions about our climate.

Alongside the opening of Project Planet and most of the first floor, the museum announces updated hours of operation. Beginning the week of October 5, the Museum will be open Saturdays 11am–4pm, with an exclusive members-only hour from 10–11am, and Sunday from noon–4pm.

The opening of Project Planet was originally scheduled for April 22, 2020, the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day but was delayed due to COVID-19. Project Planet exhibit will remain on display at the museum indefinitely.

This transition offers guests an additional day of the weekend to visit the museum, while allowing students participating in the Little Scholars Program to remain socially distanced from museum guests.
