Perot Museum hard hat tour

North Texas media get a first look inside the Perot Museum of Nature and Science on Feb. 2, 2012.

With waivers signed and safety gear in place, approximately 90-plus North Texas media got a first look at the Perot Museum of Nature & Science during the a series of hard hat tours held on Thursday, February 2.

Once inside the building, each tour was kicked off by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne and each of the four additional tour stops were enhanced with comments from exhibit designer Paul Bernhard, who created the Tom Hunt Energy Hall and the Gems and Minerals Hall; the Museum’s chief curator and top paleontologist Dr. Tony Fiorillo; Museum education VP Steve Hinkley; and Scripps.
