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 What's Up Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones, 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 Member 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.
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!
What's Up Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones
What's Up Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones, examines Jones’ development as a filmmaker and visual artist and showcases many of his most significant films, which come to life on screens throughout the exhibition. Chuck Jones brought to animation an unparalleled talent for comic invention and a flair for creating animated characters with distinctive and often wildly eccentric personalities. Jones perfected the quintessentially suave and wisecracking Bugs Bunny, the perpetually exasperated Daffy Duck, the hapless but optimistic Elmer Fudd, and created the incurably romantic Pepé Le Pew, and the eternal antagonists Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.

Humpback Whales | Opening March 6
An extraordinary journey into the hidden world of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammal, Humpback Whales takes you to Alaska, Hawaii, and the Kingdom of Tonga for a close-up look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play, and care for their young. Captured with IMAX® cameras, and found in every ocean on Earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a steady recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out what makes humpbacks the most acrobatic of all whales, why only the males sing, and why these intelligent 50-foot, 48-ton animals migrate more than 6,000 miles every year.
