Supporting the Museum Supports Your Community

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History has been one of our community's treasured gems for decades. Each year, thousands of students make field trips to the Museum to explore the wonders of the cosmos in the Noble Planetarium, dig into paleontology in DinoDig® and DinoLabs, find out what moves us and the world around us in Energy Blast and unleash their creativity in Innovation Studios. We even offer assistance to several Title One schools that would not otherwise be able to provide a Museum experience to their students. Additionally, the Museum's expansive outreach programs connect with learners in remote areas providing an unforgettable learning adventure. Every year, we host more than half a million visitors of all ages. Our reach is broad, and our roots run deep in Fort Worth and the surrounding communities.

The Mad Scientist Ball is our signature annual fundraiser. With an operating cost of $10 million per year, fundraising is essential to our sustainability. By purchasing tickets to this party, you are not only treating yourself to a crazy fun night, you are also helping us continue the legacy of extraordinary learning that we have built over 70 years! Join us and bring your friends for a night of Museum madness!
