We truly couldn't do it without you!

Our Thanks

Through the generosity of the many individuals, families, and companies who have a commitment to education in the sciences, the Perot Museum is able to inspire lifelong learners and the visionaries of tomorrow.

The Perot Family

The foundation for the Perot Museum was created through a passion for education, a vision for the future, and the tremendous generosity of the Perot family.

In May 2008, the five Perot children donated $50 million to the fundraising campaign to build the new Victory Park location of the Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas in honor of their parents, Margot and Ross Perot. With the opening of the new facility in December 2012, the location was named in the family's honor.

It is so compelling to hear how many great researchers, scientists, engineers, doctors, and educators first became interested in their chosen fields as a result of visiting a great museum of science or natural history. It is our hope that this Museum can be an inspiration to the next generation of pioneers, discoverers and visionaries.

Nancy Perot

The adult children had been searching for a way to honor their parents who had given so much to both them and the city of Dallas. When the Museum opportunity came along, the children said it felt perfect. Their parents' lifelong passion has always been education, particularly in the sciences. Mr. Perot's hope was for the Museum to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists. "This will get them to dream," he said. "In our country, you can dream the dream and make the dream come true." He said he was "honored that my children and grandchildren wanted to do this. And I hope it will inspire young people to reach for the stars, as I was able to do."


In November 2011 the Museum announced that it had triumphantly surpassed its $185 million expansion campaign goal. These funds supported the land acquisition, exhibition planning, design, and construction of the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science building, education programs, and the Campaign for Excellence.

The Museum gratefully acknowledges the extraordinary generosity of these donors.
