Dive into 277 acres of museums and performance venues. The site of the Texas State Fair since 1886, Fair Park hosts the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the United States. Most of the original buildings built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition have been restored as superb examples of the period. Take in a game or performance at The Cotton Bowl, stroll through landscaped paths, or take a Swan Boat on the Leonhardt Lagoon, or enjoy educational family fun at the Perot Museum of Nature & Science and the Children's Aquarium at Fair Park.
