The Museum of Nature & Science, located in Dallas, Texas, is the result of the 2006 mergers of the Dallas Museum of Natural History (established in 1936), The Science Place (1946) and the Dallas Children's Museum (1995). It is currently located in Fair Park, where its three buildings are currently located. The Museum features an IMAX-style theater featuring science driven films, a fully functioning planetarium, an extensive exhibit hall, and its own on-site paleontology lab.
As of 2008, the Museum is housed in three structures in Fair Park. Plans are underway to move to a new site to be constructed in Victory Park in downtown Dallas. The Victory Park facility will be renamed the "Perot Museum of Nature & Science", in honor of Ross Perot and his wife, Margot, after a $50 million donation from their children to the museum.
