Missouri, Kansas City – To History and Modern Science
The discovery makes the basis of an important collection of everyday items from the period before the American Civil War. The number of findings is so large that many of them have not been cleaned and repaired yet. New and new exhibits, such as toys, tools, dishes and porcelain sets, are continuously added to the exhibition. In addition, the museum will learn about the golden times of steam transport on the Missouri River, at the bottom of which not only ended Arabia, but many other ships as well.
We'll break away from history for a while and go to Science City. This science center is located at Union Station, a hall designed to accommodate 10,000 passengers. In the 1980s, however, it was closed for reconstruction and opened at the turn of the millennium. Rail transport is no longer operating as much as in the past.
Science City focuses on various areas of science. At present, a new permanent exhibition is opened in the museum, focusing on Force and Motion, where you can explore various physical phenomena. Another recent novelty is currently the largest exhibition Amazing Brain, or amazing brain. As the name suggests, in a fun way you will learn in depth the various facts about the center of our mind. One of the interactive exhibits is, by the way, a lie detector where you can test whether you can lie without the detector knowing it. At the Every Last Drop exhibition you will discover various unique properties associated with water.
Young visitors will certainly have fun in the dinosaur section. They learn about paleontology, and even try to dig their own dinosaur skeleton. In the Demo Area, there is a kitchen where children can try the properties of their food until they get tired. Science City also includes a planetarium and a regular accompanying program. There is also a souvenir shop, from which you will certainly take home something interesting to remember.
