Fair Park Description
Fair Park is a cornucopia of small museums and buildings housed in the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in the country; it was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Texas in 1936. Most know it as home to the Cotton Bowl Stadium, and attractions range from a nature garden to a science museum, and history museums celebrating Texas, women, and African Americans.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Stick to a schedule if planning to visit more than two attractions; usually two will do the trick for kids of most ages.
School-Age Kids: This age range will be most entertained at the science museum and the aquarium.
- A Fair Park Passport Good for 90 days, the passport allows admission to seven of the park's attractions.
- Limited lunching The options for meals and snacks is limited within the park, so best to eat before or bring snacks along.
