Summer 2021 at the Perot Museum challenges your best self

It’s record-breaking family fun at the Perot Museum for summer 2021!

Families can enjoy the opportunity to try their hand at breaking world records at The Science of Guinness World Records exhibit. It includes a host of interactive activities packed with scientific concepts that test speed, thought and endurance.

One of the main goals is the art of discovery.

“At Guinness World Records, we believe you can be the best at something,” Ripley Entertainment, Inc. Director of Traveling Shows John Corcoran said. “Find out what you can be great at and let us help celebrate that.”

Attempt stations are situated throughout the space, allowing for plenty of room to social distance as museum-goers bring forth their best efforts. It’s definitely a workout that can deplete your energy as you compete.

The takeaway from the experience Corcoran says he hopes for is “a little bit of curiosity, maybe a little bit of exhaustion because you had so much fun playing, and an appreciation for becoming a world record breaker.”

The Science of Guinness World Records exhibit is located on the lower level of the Perot Museum. Be sure to store enough energy to explore the remaining floors of the four level museum offerings of sports, space, dinosaurs, human evolution, engineering and so much more.

Don’t leave the museum without seeing the Staircase Project, GIANT STEPS, that celebrates African American science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) leaders. Beautifully crafted by local designer Daniel M. Gunn, the outdoor art installation adorns the Perot Museum steps at the corner of Field Street and Woodall Rodgers service road.
