Important Spring Break Tips

As with most attractions in North Texas, Spring Break is a very busy time at the Museum. Please anticipate bustling crowds and longer wait times at the ticket offices, as well as longer wait times for our popular exhibit galleries including our Noble Planetarium and the Children's Museum. Most OMNI IMAX show times, planetarium presentations and timed ticket entry times will sell out early.  In addition, our Museum Parking Lot, located on the south side of the museum, will fill to capacity early in the day.  While Museum Members park free in this lot, parking spaces are limited and are first come, first served.  All other lots in the Cultural District are managed by the City of Fort Worth and require a parking fee.

Please note that nearby construction is having an impact on parking in our area. Please allow more time for travel and finding a place to park, particularly if the Museum Parking Lot is full. Additionally, the Blue/Harley Lot is now closed due to construction. We apologize for the inconvenience and invite you to learn more about parking in the Cultural District here.

We recommend you purchase your tickets for all programs in advance online or by phone 817-255-9540 prior to your visit to ensure the show time or entry time of your choice. Please also know that we will be operating two ticket office locations -- one at the Urban Lantern (Main Museum Entrance) and a second location at the Omni Theater entrance. Both ticket offices offer identical program/film offerings. We look forward to seeing you here!

Purchase tickets in advance online, or by calling 817-255-9540.
