Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series, MythBusters, comes to life to uncover truths behind popular myths by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and old fashioned ingenuity. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition creates hands-on, interactive experience for guests of all ages by combining scientific facts with innovative, family-friendly displays.

Opening to the public on Saturday, October 13, 2012, the Exhibition –seeks to “bust,” “confirm,” or judge inconclusive such pressing questions such as Will running in the rain keep you drier than walking? Or, can an airplane really take off from a conveyer belt moving the opposite direction? It closes January 6, 2013.

“MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition takes scientific investigation to exciting new levels,” Tim Ritchie, president of The Tech, said. “And since the museum is all about inspiring the innovator in everyone, we think this exhibition is nicely aligned with that goal.”

Guests will learn about myths, the MythBusters and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences and live demonstrations. Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed and combustion.

The Exhibition tour will visit 15 total cities within the U.S. and Canada. For more information on MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, visit
