Don’t 'Jump' – After Visitor's Injury, Perot Museum Exhibit Is Off Limits

Jan 8, 2013

We now know more about an injury two weeks ago at the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas.

Earlier, the museum issued a terse statement saying a man was treated for a non-life-threatening injury and an exhibit would be temporarily closed.  But the Perot folks did not name the exhibit.

Now we know it was the interactive “Jump” exhibit in the Sports Hall.  An update from the museum says the man’s ring finger was injured.  He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.  And “in an abundance of caution”, the Jump exhibit remains closed while the situation is reviewed.
