MythBusters exhibition opens in Chicago
Even without such a contraption, the show’s stars hope the exhibit will bust what they say is the biggest myth of all: Science is just for nerds.
“Science is cool,” said one of the show’s stars, Kari Byron, as she looked around the exhibition.
If You Go…
MYTHBUSTERS: Through Sept. 3 at Museum of Science and Industry, 57th Street and Lake Shore Drive, Chicago; http://www.msichicago.org/ or 773-684-1414. Open daily 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Timed ticketing; adults, $25, children 3-11, $18 (general admission plus $10).
Who gets wetter: The person who walks in the rain or the one who runs? And in the story of the three little pigs, was the house made of bricks really stronger than the ones made from straw and sticks?
Now, a new exhibition at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry will attempt to answer those questions and others.
“MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition,” is modeled after the Discovery Channel’s show “MythBusters.” Visitors can do the same experiments they’ve seen the hosts of the show conduct for years. One area features a shed equipped with hoses and nozzles allowing visitors to test whether the runner or walker gets wetter in the rain.
The show opens Thursday and runs through Sept. 3.
