One of the largest of its kind in the country, with a domed Omni (IMAX) theater, a planetarium, eight exhibition galleries, and hands-on science displays, this museum offers tons of fun and adventure for families. Kids should eat up the life-size Lone Star dinosaurs (at "Dinodig" they can even hunt for fossils and dig for dinosaur bones), while younger ones can hang out at Kidspace, which has a puppet theater and materials for building a house. The Cattle Raisers Museum is also on site (see the separate write up for that on this site). Allow a couple of hours here unless the kids get cranky.
