Coming May 23, 2020: Going Places

DISCOVERY Children’s Museum presents Going Places from Saturday, May 23 to Sunday, September 20, 2020. Fasten your seatbelts; Going Places–the Technology of Transport has arrived!

Created by the renowned Scitech in Perth, Australia, Going Places is an interactive science exhibition that explores the technology humans have developed for travel. If you have ever wanted to pilot an airship, ride on a hovercraft, or control traffic in a city, now is your big chance!

“This exhibition has heaps of diversity,” says DISCOVERY Children’s Museum CEO, Melissa Kaiser. “It demonstrates the way mankind has developed new technology to overcome obstacles such as gravity and distance, while providing great fun for children, parents and students.”

Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions says, “Imagine Exhibitions is proud to partner with Scitech to bring Going Places to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. Human modes of transportation have changed so much in just the past 150 years. It is exciting to present an exhibition that allows visitors to dive deep into these innovations, get behind the wheel (literally!),and speculate on where we will go in the next 150 years.”

Explore how different modes of transportation have shaped society and get hands-on with a multitude of challenging interactives. Fly a plane, ride a hovercraft, race your friend on a recumbent bicycle, or learn to fly an airship! YOU are the driver in Going Places’ interactive exhibits—providing the chance to experience transportation in ways you never dreamed possible! As well as exploring the technology that gets us around everyday, visitors will also explore the way that travel has shaped the social fabric of our time. Visitors will even see new technology and get a glimpse of where our future is headed.

With 17 exhibits and eight information kiosks detailing the incredible technology pioneered by humans to make the farthest reaches of our planet accessible, Going Places is a wild ride! The key messages of this exhibition are: observe, understand and use an incredible range of travel technology to see how it makes our lives easier and better, AND learn how the Earth’s awesome size and natural processes, like gravity, wind, currents, waves, friction, and changing landscapes are overcome by the ingenious designs, researched and developed over time. With so many hands-on exhibits, Going Places promises to be a wild ride.

Going Places will open to the public on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Tickets are available for purchase at the DISCOVERY Front Desk or online at discoverykidslv.org. To schedule a school visit, contact reservations@discoverykidslv.org.
