Philadelphia Inquirer: Big Shows in Philly Museums

The Science History Institute’s museum is featured in the Inquirer’s “Spring Arts Preview.”

Discover the Science Behind Everyday Objects (ongoing permanent exhibition, Science History Institute). A new multimedia installation showcasing the institute’s collection of art, scientific instruments, and rare books. The redo includes a two-story-high video column and the “Object Explorer,” a pair of high-resolution, interactive tables where visitors can explore the history and science behind various everyday objects. Flip-flops anyone?
