MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition
Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
The Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series comes to life to uncover truths behind popular myths by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and old-fashioned ingenuity in MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, which is set to be on display until January.
This exhibition creates hands-on, interactive experiences for guests of all ages by combining popular scientific facts with innovative, family-friendly displays. In MythBusters, co-hosts Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara take scientific investigation to exciting new levels by proving or exploding myths using their highly experimental approach and extensive backgrounds in special effects. Savage and Hyneman were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests experience a true MythBusting encounter.
Guests of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will learn about myths, the MythBusters, and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences and live demonstrations. Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed, and combustion. The exhibition showcases a blueprint room filled with gadgets, props, videos, and blueprints. The workshop is where guests turn into investigators and use real science to test myths. On the demonstration stage, guests have the opportunity to view and participate in live science experiments with the help of a MythBusters team.

Since 1954 the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History has been a Cultural District staple located near the Will Rogers Memorial Center and the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame. Anchored by its rich collections, FWMSH is an institution dedicated to lifelong learning engaging children and adult guests through creative, vibrant programs and exhibits interpreting science and the history of Texas and the Southwest. Since its building renovation in 2009, the permanent exhibits feature DinoLabs, Energy Blast, The Cattle Raisers Museum, The Fort Worth Children’s Museum, and the 9/11 Tribute Exhibit. DinoLabs is a 3,700-square foot-gallery where you can experience the immensity of the State Dinosaur of Texas for the very first time. Energy Blast immerses you into the world of regional energy and alternative energy resources, and highlights the innovative pioneers who continue to make energy a leading industry in the region-all through interactive exhibits, multimedia, dioramas, learning stations, and a 4D Theater. The Cattle Raisers Museum is a 10,000-square-
foot exhibition dedicated to preserving and celebrating the vital history of the cattle industry. The Fort Worth Children’s Museum gallery targets the Museum’s youngest guests– ages new born to 8 – and their caregivers.The purpose is to encourage opportunities for children to play since; of course, it is another way they learn. The 9/11 Tribute Exhibit displays the World Trade Center’s largest artifact: beam N-101 from the World Trade Center’s North Tower. The Omni Theater, which can be found within the Museum as well, was the first IMAX screen in the Southwest and remains the largest IMAX dome in the United States west of the Mississippi River. The Omni’s 120-foot-wide screen places the audience in the center of the action, producing a sensation much closer to real-life than a conventional movie theater. The theater embodies a revolutionary concept in film presentation that combines the drama of oversized film, state-of-the-art projection equipment, and innovative tilt-domed theater architecture. These sophisticated production techniques create a unique cinematic experience. The Museumis open daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
