MSI offers thousands of fun, interactive exhibits and one-of-a-kind, world-class experiences to inspire the inventive genius in everyone. See your heart beat 13-feet tall. Climb aboard a World War II German submarine. Work alongside robots in a toy factory. Take a tour of your digestive system. Plunge into a working coal mine. Control a 40-foot tornado. Dissect an eyeball. Step into the future. Discover new permanent exhibits "Science Storms" and "YOU! The Experience."  The "Idea Factory" caters to a range of kids-from infants to toddlers and 10-year-olds--a perfect one-stop shop for the Museum's youngest scientists where they can explore the attributes of basic objects and test theories about the fundamentals of construction, simple machines, light, color and water. Starting March 20, see Earth Explorers from National Geographic, a hands-on exhibit that allows kids of all ages to become explorers and journey to the wildest places on Earth. Choose from a variety restaurants at MSI, The Brain Food Court, Jazzman's Café and Finnigan's Ice Cream Parlor, serving something for every taste.
