After one year of being open TXMOST has hosted the following exhibitions
In partnership with The Exploratorium, TXMOST obtained a variety of hands-on exhibits that all demonstrated an aspect of physics like light or sound. These exhibits were meant to be played with, explored, and are great for any age. These exhibits moved on during the last week of October 2016, but over the coming months we will be working to create a few of our very own!
Body Worlds & The Cycle of Life
This breathtaking exhibition featured authentic human bodies preserved through a special process. Body Worlds is a fascinating look at what’s under your own skin. The exhibition featured over ten fully preserved donor bodies and many more stand-alone specimens exploring the various systems and inner workings of the human body. The Texas Museum of Science & Technology hosted Body Worlds from March 20, 2015 through November 8, 2015.
Celebrating the opening of the Larry K. Forrest Memorial Planetarium, the Texas Museum of Science & Technology hosted an exhibition from NASA’s Johnson Space Center which explored space exploration. Patrons encountered a model of the Space Shuttle, Enterprise, attached to the modified 747 used for altitude and landing tests. They also learned about the history of manned space flight and exploring the universe. The highlight of the exhibition was an EMU Apollo mission space suit belonging to Buzz Aldrin.
Nikon Small World
An amazing showcase of the 2015 winners of the Nikon Small World microphotography competition. Patrons were treated to 20 stunning photographs “showcasing the beauty and complexity of life as seen through the light microscope.” Through spectacular colors and competition visitors got an up close and personal encounter with a bee’s eye, seeds, plant tissues, the underside of a starfish, and much, much more!
