The exhibition will uncover the truth behind popular myths with hands-on, interactive experiences for guests of all ages and live demonstrations. Experiments will cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed and combustion.
Tickets for the exhibition will go on sale Dec. 1, and the exhibit will run March 15-Sept. 3. The show will tour 14 additional cities within the U.S. and Canada.
“To be able to witness the scientific excitement of 'MythBusters' live is a rare and unique opportunity and we are thrilled to bring this experience to the public,” says Amy Noble Seitz, founder and chief executive officer of Exhibits Development Group. “Supporting Discovery Channel, its talented team and the 'MythBusters' themselves on the debut of their first major traveling exhibition is an honor. We truly hope this exhibit will spur scientific curiosity, thought and experimentation for all ages.”
“We’re thrilled to be the premiere site for this one-of-a-kind of exhibit experience,” says David Mosena, president and chief executive officer of the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. “The 'MythBusters' share our vision of inspiring young people to achieve their full potential in science, and we’re excited by this unprecedented collaboration with 'MythBusters,' Discovery Channel, EDG and partners.”
