Located in Fair Park

Please note that we are located inside the fairgrounds at Fair Park. When visiting us during State Fair time, you will need to use your member's complimentary Fair ticket vouchers or purchase admission tickets to the State Fair to get to our building.

During the Fair, we have daily activities, and it is one of the liveliest times to come see us. It is also an extremely important time for us to reach new visitors and teach them about our mission.
