This Monday will be the closing day for the museum's spring exhibits. It will be the final day to investigate the science of sound, hearing and music with Noise! There are 11 hands-on activities to try out -- including a scream chamber for visitors to measure the decibel level of their loudest scream. Other activities include a sound track and wrench ball.
You also won't want to miss Toys: The Inside Story, which features 12 hands-on stations illustrating mechanisms commonly found in toys, as well as lets visitors create their own combinations of gears and pulleys. Pay close attention to the circuit wall, the area of the exhibit that keeps you current with the basics of circuits, switches and circuit boards.
And finally, don't forget to check out Keeping Company with Flowers: A Glimpse into the World of Pollinators, located in the James W. Cornyn Valley Gallery. Visitors will get the chance to examine the relationship between flowers and pollinators through more than 50 photographs of pollinators in wild and garden settings. Keeping Company with Flowers vividly portrays a glimpse into the relationship between flowers and their many kinds of pollinators. Visitors will explore who pollinates and where pollinators live.
