Pop-Up Music: Sound Effects

Cardboard speakers, basic ukulele chords, drum circles… we’ve got a lot of activities in our repertoire, so who knows what we’ll pull out next?

Sound plays a huge part in the film industry. We’ll explore how sounds are created and added to films to make them come alive. Join us this Sunday to learn about key moments in the sound effects and how they are made such as a lightsaber, a T-Rex roar, and so much more!

Join us in the exhibits gallery for an activity that rocks as hard as you do (well, almost!).

Pop-Up Music activities are included with admission/your membership.

Dream to Fly

Since the beginning of history, people have dreamed of flying. Tales of mythical dragon flights thrilled ancient dreamers. Storytellers wove airy fantasies of magic carpet rides. Leonardo da Vinci stoked the dreams of flight with his fantastic drawings and through his eyes, we learned to look to nature for the secrets of flight. Dream To Fly is a poetic and touching story of aviation development through the ages. It presents the significant milestones on our route to conquering the skies – both in terms of technological breakthroughs, as well as our perceptions of flying itself.
