New Experiences Coming Soon!
There’s something going on at the Powerhouse. Old exhibits have disappeared overnight, while new exhibits are rising from the dust. Exhibits seem to be moving around, escaping the dark corners where they once hunkered down. A few new exhibits will be on the floor in early September…
Our air rockets exhibit has been completely re-imagined and re-worked. Yes, we took away the rocket launch tubes! Yes, we allow you to aim the rockets at targets! And yes, it’s a total blast[-off]! Come have some pneumatic propulsion fun as you learn about air pressure, rocket flight, and physics!
Our VR theater will be available for individual use and group observation in the northwest corner of the gallery. With the help of staff, you can fly around the world in VR Google Earth, or try your hand in a new job in the hilarious Job Simulator. Visit a crazy laboratory where you can see the solar system up close, play with a robot dog or defend a castle from the attacks of marauders. No paper people were injured in this exhibit!
There is something for kids-only happening “under the stairs”. Want to begin to understand the phases of celestial bodies like the moon? You’ll have to be a kid to get (fit) into this exhibit!
