You don’t have to be a fan of the hit Discovery Channel show MythBusters to love the new exhibit at Liberty Science Center. Like the television show, the exhibit is fun, exciting, educational and, yes, a bit wacky. The 100% interactive MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibit lets visitors become MythBusters to confirm or deny myths as they test them out for themselves in exhibits that will have them running, swinging and dodging bullets. Don’t miss this super fun exhibit. Educational fun: Confirmed!
Just like television’s MythBusters, children and adults will equally enjoy using the scientific method to test over a dozen of the show’s most popular segments and see for themselves the real results. Does buttered toast really always fall butter side down? Will you stay drier running or walking through the rain? Would a fairy tale big bad wolf really stand a chance? Learning has never been so fun.
We couldn’t get enough of watching both kids and adults try the tablecloth trick. There were as many fails as wins and it was hilarious to watch the dishes fly. We also loved the challenge of the blindfolded driving machine. One of us would try to direct the person driving blindfolded and see if we could keep them on the road. It was hard! In addition to all the hands-on fun, families will enjoy live shows on the demonstration stage and may even get a chance to try test their reaction times up on stage.
Kids love testing whether you get wetter walking or running through rain.
Every time I visit Liberty Science Center I wonder why we don’t go more often. The 300,000-square-foot interactive learning center in Jersey City is fun for the whole family from preschoolers to adults. The new MythBusters exhibit is just another awesome reason to spend a day of fun there. The live animal collection with 110 species, giant aquariums, three floors of exhibit halls, and the world’s largest IMAX Dome Theater make it a full day of entertainment and education.
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition will be at Liberty Science Center through September 4, 2017. It requires a Combination Pass admission ticket ($27.75 for adults, $24.75 for seniors 62+, and $22.75 for children ages 2-12). Check hours and more information at LSC.org.
