Dallas: Fair Park

by misskang

Happy 4th of July everyone! Hope everyone got to see their fair share of fireworks.

So today Lacy, Aaron and me went to Fair Park to go see the Museum of Nature & Science and the Children’s Aquarium. They had free admission for the science museum and admission to the aquarium was half off. And how were the museums? I give it a 3.5 out of 10. The facilities were quite small and the selection of exhibits was limited. There have been advertisements all over the city about their Chinasaurs exhibit which wasn’t even open – that was a big disappointment. And the biggest animal we saw at the aquarium was probably 4 feet tall.

Overall, they lacked variety and the quality of their exhibits was just unimpressive. I give it a 3 for just being there and a .5 for giving them the benefit of the doubt that I would have liked it more if it wasn’t so crowded. Dallas, you can do a better job.

So I guess it’s safe to say that we got a “fair price” for going to Fair Park today.
