Perot Museum of Nature and Science

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science opened its doors in downtown Dallas a year ago. Since that day, 1.3 million people have wandered among the dinosaurs, wobbled on the earthquake simulator and put their hands through a tornado. And at the end of this month, the museum’s CEO, Nicole Small is moving on to a new job, as president of the Lyda Hill Foundation. She stopped by our studio for a Friday conversation, which aired Dec. 6.

Nicole Small, who spent the last 12 years building the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, will leave by year's end, the Dallas Morning News reports. She'll become president of the Lyda Hill Foundation. Hill is an important donor to the museum; her foundation has also given a major grant to KERA for its news expansion.
