In celebration of its 10th Anniversary and continued commitment to inspire minds of all ages, the Perot Museum invites media to explore “Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall,” which runs through Sept. 5. World-renowned conservationist and ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall – who has famously studied chimpanzees in the wild for more than 60 years – is celebrated in this special exhibition, produced in partnership with the National Geographic Society and the Jane Goodall Institute.

As a top cultural attraction in Dallas/Fort Worth and a Michelin Green Guide three-star destination, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a nonprofit educational organization located in the heart of Dallas, Texas. With a mission to inspire minds through nature and science, the Perot Museum delivers exciting, engaging and innovative visitor and outreach experiences through its education, exhibition, and research and collections programming for children, students, teachers, families and life-long learners. One can learn the depths of science and nature through the countless resources and programs that are offered.
