Where to Take Grandparents for a Summer Playdate in Dallas

Debora Manusama-Sinaga

A museum! At least for a Texan summer playdate that is. Last week the heat was up to 104 degrees F, and it was becoming such a pain to spend time anywhere outdoor. So I decided to take my parents to one of the best museums I've been to so far, Perot Museum of Nature & Science. Loaded with tons of educative information that are showcased in a fun and interactive way, the 4-floor museum is suitable for anyone from babies to grandparents.

They got this little cafe on level 1 (where the entrance is) with both indoor & outdoor area.

Facing the cafe, is this little garden with man-made streams flowing around it (kids love to get wet here!) and a leap frog play area. They also got a little outdoor music pavilion where visitors can play their little song.

Get ready to queue and pay $15/person. Thanks to my friend, Ivana, we got to enter for free (she's a member, she pays about 100 dollars per year to get it as often as she wants for free). If you're bringing a baby or a toddler, head straight to the lower level (LL) and play around the awesome Moody Family Children's Museum, where you can find a miniature of the city of Dallas.

This is where my baby makes friends. Once he's old enough, I get to bring him to the sand pond outside (in front of the stairs on the background of the pic).
