With 106 acres (43 hectares) to explore and thousands of animals to see, the Dallas Zoo — established in 1888 — is the oldest and largest zoological park in Texas.

Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
This educational exhibit examines the life of President John F. Kennedy, as well as his presidency, his tragic death in Dallas, the aftermath of his assassination and his legacy within the context of American history. The museum’s permanent exhibit is located on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository where significant evidence of a sniper was found, and uses historical television and radio broadcasts, photographs, artifacts and interpretive displays to document the events of the assassination. With an audio guide, explore the permanent collection, and then head to the seventh floor for a variety of special programs.

Step into the Decision Points Theater to learn about the decision-making process and policies developed during George W. Bush's presidency, and discover his stance on education reform, the global war on terror, the financial crisis and efforts to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS. The museum also features a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, a full-size replica of the Oval Office and a Texas rose garden.

The Color Garden is home to more than 2,000 varieties of azaleas, which bloom in the spring along with daffodils and tulips, while more than 90 varieties of ferns, camellias, azaleas and mature trees border a peaceful brook along the Palmer Fern Dell.

Beware! The tickets in the citypass book DO NOT get you automatically into the venue. Everywhere we read, did not prepare us for that. You must stand in line that everyone else is in to get an entrance ticket to each venue you visit. The only one that offered front of the line service was Dealey Plaza thank you but be sure to get there early as scheduled tours do book up quickly. We were there at 2 and couldn't get in until 4:00. It was nice to save a few dollars with a package deal, but that is all it gets you. We visited the Bush Library, Dealey Plaza, Perot Museum and Reunion Tower. All were very interesting to experience and we are glad we did it, but disappointed in what the citypass offered us.
This tour was amazing!
I wish I had one more day to be able to go one more place on my Dallas CityPASS! I loved the 6th Story Museum the best, but the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and Reunion Tower were awesome, as well.
We went to the George Bush Library, Perot Science Museum, Reunion Tower, and JFK Museum. The Perot Science Museum was a huge disappointment. Many of the interactive displays were non or partially functional. The movie we saw was stupid per our children ages 6, 9 and 10.
This tour was amazing!
Great! It was easy to use and we did a lot of sightseeing. It was HOT as the blazes, but all in all FUN. Thanks. The Perot Museum was great fun for our grandson and us, we flew like and eagle and picked some bones! The Tower was fantastic for my husband and I, we had dinner and drinks and looked out over the city really beautiful. The zoo was too hot to really enjoy, but I know if the weather was cooler, we would have had a wonderful time.
Really enjoyed the Arboretum, the zoo and the Science and Nature Museum. The tower was okay, but would have like to have seen the 6th floor museum at Delaney Bldg. which we could have had the option switched the tower with that JFK museum instead of the zoo or JFK.
Otherwise everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable at all of the attractions and we enjoyed our stay.
Excellent tour and very good prices.
We were able to do everything we wanted in Dallas plus a little extra we were not expecting to see too - definitely worth getting this. We feel we have really done the destination fully helped by having these passes.
We went to see everything that was in the Pass. You should add Aquarium as well!
The Perot museum was amazing and we spent hours there. The Dealey Plaza museum was incredible and was something that really made the whole trip. You will love it especially if you are a history buff. Dallas is an extremely appealing city and the Geo tower enabled us to get a great view of it as we were sitting in the Wolfgang Puck restaurant.
Very easy to use. Seeing all the sites were great and way cheaper to buy the City Pass.
Went to front of queue at 6th flr museum and saved at least 30 minutes.
Not exactly what I was after .
Everything is good... we managed to visit to all the places listed in the CityPASS. Dallas Museum of Art DMA is among the best spot we like. Thanks to Viator for the cheaper rate on the Dallas CityPASS.
