Where can you find a planetarium, an IMAX theater, live animals, and animatronic dinosaurs all in one place? The Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas, of course! Three cultural institutions in Fair Park (the Dallas Museum of Natural History, The Science Place, and the Dallas Children’s Museum) merged in 2006 to form the Museum of Nature & Science. Today, the combined collections cover more than 1.7 billion years of Earth’s history!
