The 2012-2013 school year is quickly coming to a close. The staff of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and School Services hopes your year was full of adventures in learning. We wish you a summer filled with fun and relaxation with family and friends.
Thanks to all of you who joined us for a field trip, Family Science Festival, Family Museum Night, an OMNI film, a special event or a Noble Planetarium show. We are glad you chose to spend your time with us and look forward to seeing you again next year with your "new" students!
We would love to see you this summer. Check the website for all the exciting opportunities happening for your family in the Museum this summer.
