Be ready to #EnterTheScienceCircus!
Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the 5th traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum, supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center.
The Science Circus: Step Right Up! showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind.
While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with impressive demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of entertainment by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.
As the guests enter the exhibition, they are welcomed by a happy, colorful façade which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.
Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.
Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by a simple machine, and engages visitors in activities that evoke their inner engineer.
Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.
Visit the Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition right now for another beautiful ride through the world of Science! To make it even more enticing, a special treat awaits!
The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of delightful secrets that we can uncover, to discover more about ourselves and the world around us. Let’s all have fun together! See you there!
