Review: Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

Other than receiving a free visit to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, I was not paid for any of the opinions or reviews expressed in this blog. Only locations that score a 4+ on a 1-5 scale make it onto our website.

What did YOU do this past weekend?  My boys, Liz and I all went to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.  About an hour away from where we live, this museum is totally worth the drive!  We were most excited about the Mythbusters exhibit because that is one of our favorite shows!  As soon as we got there, we headed straight for it.

When you first get into the exhibit, you can see a TON of props from the show.  There was a boat made out of duct tape.  

We got to see Buster all busted up.  My kids were laughing about the unpolished rhino poop.  

They even had the clothes of the cast that were worn on the show!

Once you round the corner, you get to the best part.  You get to bust your own myths!!  They had a whole bunch of myths you were able to test on your own from dropping toast to an airplane on a conveyor belt.  In case you were wondering, toast USUALLY falls butter down.

There was a really cool myth that tested whether you get more wet running or walking through rain.  However, the rain had something really cool in it that made you glow under a black light after you walked through.  The only conclusion that we came to here was rain simulation + a three year old = one wet fox.  

We also concluded that Liz CANNOT drive blind.  

Check out this video!  My nine year old, Bradyn is pretty good at pulling the table cloth off of the table without making dishes fly everywhere.  I did pretty good myself at that one!  My six year old Phoenix is a little ninja.  He was able to stick a card into the target!  

Would you believe that a swing held up by phone books can hold up me wearing Charlie?  It can also hold up my four big boys all at once!

After we tested all of these myths, we watched a cute little show on busting the myth of dodging a bullet (well, paintball!).  Apparently you can’t dodge a bullet, but is it possible to dodge a paintball?  Go watch our video to find out!  

Once we were done checking out the Mythbusters exhibit, we went to town.  Cow town, that is!!  Check out all of these awesome cattle brands!

For those that don’t know, this is my three year old, Chevy.  

I took this moment to teach my kids about Mountain Oysters.  Haha.  Yeah.  I’m THAT mom.

We enjoyed the planetarium show after checking out a bunch of the awesome stuff in the Innovation Studios.  Our most favorite was the giant lite brite.  I need one of these in my house!  We played with light, silhouettes and shadows.

We watched a cup tower being built.

Look!  You can see the soundwaves!  Go watch the video of this display as well!

Once the Planetarium show was over, we went to visit the dinosaurs.  These guys are HUGE!

My (almost) eight year old called this a caveman hot tub!

Our last stop of the day was the Children’s Museum.  My favorite part here were the bubble tubes!

They had some icky critters to observe as well as a fun outdoor water area.  I got this little guy with his tongue out!

If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for your kids, but are tired of all of the STUFF, you should consider purchasing a membership to the FWMSH!  There are several levels of memberships for different family sizes.  There’s really SO much to do and view at the museum, you’ll need to go back again and again to get to experience everything.  Thank you to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for welcoming our Crunchy Family!  We had a WONDERFUL time and will definitely come back!

I am a Crunchy Mama of 5 rowdy boys, stepmama to 1 girl and have another sweet girl on the way! I also gave birth to a baby girl in January 2016 for an awesome couple as their surrogate. I married my awesome husband, Brian in October 2016 and we are located in a little city outside of Dallas, Texas. I am a jill-of-many-trades. I run a laundry service, do custom sewing and even sell lactation cookies to my locals. I love to shop at thrift stores, take showers without an audience and spend time dreaming of a life off the grid!
