Does toast always land butter-side down? What keeps you drier: running in the rain or walking through it? Can you really pull a tablecloth off of a fully set table without disturbing a dish? In this amazing hands-on exhibition, you can put these myths to the test—just as the team from the popular MythBusters TV show has done for years! Use scientific observations and your own curiosity to search for the truth behind some commonly held beliefs.
This exhibition is a true MythBusters creation, five years in the making. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition includes live demonstrations, visitor participation and spectacular sets and experiences from the TV show. On display in our expanded upstairs galleries, the exhibition will overflow with hands-on props and gadgets from the show.
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition will open at the Fleet Science Center on Saturday, February 24, 2018, and will be open daily through Monday, September 3, 2018.
MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition is organized by Exhibits Development Group and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates in collaboration with Discovery Communications and the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago; MythBusters Developed and Produced by Beyond Entertainment Limited.
