Museum of Science and Industry, Science Storms Exhibit

The museum underwent a significant upgrade of its exhibits and entry spaces coinciding with its 75th anniversary celebration including a new 40,000-square-foot exhibit called Science Storms. The 60-foot-high space uses sophisticated audio and video, immersive media, and large-scale simulations to present natural phenomena. The exhibit includes an avalanche table, a Tesla coil that shoots lightning bolts, a heliostat, and a walk-through tornado, with separate audio systems to create full sensory experiences.
