In 2006, a pair of Fair Park mainstays—the Dallas Museum of Natural History and The Science Place, both of which had been around for more than 60 years—merged with the Dallas Children’s Museum. The result was the Museum of Nature & Science, an expansive, multi-building institution with activties and exhibits.
Those longtime headquarters are now merely an offshoot of what is now the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, renamed for the expansive gift given by the Perot children in honor of their parents to complete the museum's new Victory Park location that broke ground in 2009. The Thom Mayne-designed Perot Museum officially opened its halls on December 1, 2012.
