The Museum of Science and Industry hosts an interactive exhibition modeled on the Discovery Channel TV series about uncovering truth behind popular myths.
Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series MythBusters specializes in subjecting wild ideas to some wildly entertaining experiments. No strangers to illusions themselves, MythBusters Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman bring their expertise in special effects—along with co-hosts Tory Belleci, Grant Imahara and Kari Byron—to relentlessly bust or confirm myths through the scientific method.
Think you need to know the show to get into the action? That’s your first myth to bust. Just like the series, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition shows you how to uncover the truth or myth behind everything from blowing down a brick house to staying dry in the rain by running. Try a dozen hands-on experiments that will get your heart and mind racing, watch live MythBusting demonstrations, and explore authentic props and gadgets direct from the MythBusters set. Put your scientific curiosity into action in the world-premiere MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, now open through September 3, 2012.
