Review- MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition

Review- MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition

Always wanted to spend a day as a MythBuster? Well, now you can through January fifth at Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Uncover the truths behind so many myths and get hands-on, scientific experience.

The Features

Guest will be right in on the fun with hands-on experiences and live demonstrations.

It all begins with co-hosts Adam and Jamie who appear via video teaching their important and intriguing experimentation methods.

Rooms then present you with a replica of the Myth Busters set showcasing sixty artifacts handpicked by the Mythbusters themselves just for you. There is even a blueprint book that lets you view diagrams of exciting experiments that have been featured on the show.

The Workshop

Here, you get to jump in and test out experiments for yourself. Set up in a free-flowing style, visitors can pick and choose what to enjoy. Use that curiosity and those investigative skills to start with a question and seek the best answer.

Here are some of my favorite parts of the exhibit!

Running in the Rain: We’ve all been there: stuck in a rainstorm without an umbrella and the urge to make a run for it. Will running really keep you drier? Here’s your chance to find out. You and a partner move through a 20-foot shed, in which it’s actually raining. One of you walks, the other runs. When you come out the other side, you’ll be able to compare degrees of dampness. To help you spot all those raindrops in true MythBusters science fashion, you’ll have a blacklight, a fluorescence microscopy filter, and the exhibition’s special rain recipe, which allows the water to glow and makes it easy to determine how wet you got.

Cliff Hanger: How would you stack up against an action hero or stunt man? The Cliff Hanger interactive lets you find out. Hang from a ledge by your fingers and see how long you last. A timer will kick in with the pressure from your body, and you can even test how a change in the depth of the cliff alters your results.

Tablecloth Chaos: What will happen when you try to pull a tablecloth off a fully set table? Find out by setting your table with our nonbreakable dishes and then using Newton’s first law of motion to find the correct angle and speed to pull your tablecloth from under the place
setting—without disturbing a dish.

Dodge a Bullet: Police dramas make it look easy, but is it possible? You’ll test your reaction time in this experiment. Stand against the wall until the motion sensor recognizes your presence. At an unexpected time, a strobe light will “fire” and time how quickly you’re able to
move out of its path.

Featuring 250 objects, the exhibition illustrates the rich and glamorous history of Cartier

The Denver Art Museum will be the only venue worldwide for Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century, November 16, 2014–March 15, 2015. Featuring an assortment of jewelry, timepieces and precious objects produced between 1900 and 1975, the exhibition highlights Cartier’s rise to preeminence—and the historical events pushing the brand’s evolution—as it transformed itself into one of the world’s most prestigious names in jewelry and luxury accessories.

“The evolution of Cartier takes us on a journey through 20th century history, from the era of the last Czars in Russia to the Roaring ‘20s in America to the onset of Hollywood glamour as we know it,” said Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM. “We hope people come from near and far to take advantage of this rare opportunity and experience all that Denver and the Denver Art Museum have to offer.”

Brilliant will present a selection of themes ranging from Art Deco to old Hollywood glamour that cut across time periods and styles to display the immense influence and innovation of the brand. A special section focused on masculine items will offer a rare look at the items Cartier crafted especially for men, including the modern wristwatch.

The immersive installation will be designed by Nathalie Crinière, exhibition designer for Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective. A fully illustrated publication accompanying the show will be available at The Shop at the Denver Art Museum. Organized by the DAM, the exhibition will be on view in the Anschutz and Martin and McCormick galleries on level two of the Hamilton Building. Special exhibition tickets will go on sale summer 2014.
