Immerse Yourself in the Nature and Science Museum

The Christopher at the Union enjoys close proximity to some of Dallas’s finest attractions, entertainment, and shopping.

One astounding feature of the community is its close proximity to some of Texas’s finest museums. One such museum is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a mere five-minute walk from the Christopher.

You can spend a full day at the museum, or even purchase a membership for repeated visits that allow you to experience everything this amazing facility has to offer.

Permanent Exhibit Halls

Each hall provides a unique thematic experience. Choose your area of interest, or circulate among the areas to take in all of the incredible displays.

In the Discovering Life Hall, you’ll be surrounded by genuine articles from the fossil record. The Life Then and Now Hall also offers you rare glimpses of prehistoric remnants – suspended above you, and displayed right before your eyes. The Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall offers a startling display of glimmering beauty and includes the particular opportunity to crack open a 5-foot tall geode.

You can also experience the science and entertainment of exhibits focusing on human-made technology. The Lamar Hunt Family Sports Hall permits you the chance to test out the physical dynamics of popular sports. And the Texas Instruments Engineering and Innovation Hall allows you to explore everything from electrical to software engineering.

Programs and Events

Activities abound for all ages. Children enjoy “Discovery Days” – held on the second Saturday of each month, which provides hands-on exploration of various themes. Adults appreciate the opportunity to engage in the “National Geographic Live Speaker Series” and watch celebrated experts in their fields discuss everything from extreme cave diving to the leopards of Mumbai.

Adults can also enjoy the intermittently-scheduled science cafe, which provides an opportunity for experts to come together with locals and discuss research in a casual pub setting.

All of this – and so much more – is available in close access to you at The Christopher. You’ll also enjoy a stunning amount of in-house amenities to go along with your luxury apartment. Contact us to learn more about joining our vibrant community!
