Robert Ripley spent his life collecting natural oddities that fascinated him and the world. Discovery Science Center has taken his life's works and explained the science behind many of the fascinating stories.
My children didn't know what to expect when I brought them to the Discovery Science Center. They had been there to check out the great dinosaur exhibit but they had never heard of Robert Ripley. I can guarantee that my 4 and 6 year old probably won't remember his name but they will remember the incredibly fun interactive things they experienced.
Some of our favorite exhibits that we saw on a special media preview last week included:
- Artwork using different everyday mediums such as candy, toast, keyboard keys, car parts, and more!
- Fascinating cultural objects such as shrunken heads and ringed necks.
- Interactive optical and auditory illusions that educate and entertain.
- Pre-historic fossils
Shrunken heads are a little creepy but cool! They take the bones out and sew the skin back together smaller!
