The galleries of the Mind Museum

Atom Gallery: The Strange World of the Very Small

The Atom Gallery is the gallery with the most number of interactive exhibits. It contains the very elemental forces that are so familiar that we take them for granted like gravity and electromagnetism. It also presents the counterintuitive quantum world that resembles nothing from everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology of today.

Life Gallery: The Exuberance of Life

The Life Gallery features the exuberance of a living planet in all its forms. It features the various habitats that nurture an astonishing number and kinds of organisms. This gallery also features the inner spaces that inhabit this life in the form of molecules called DNA.

 Earth Gallery: Nature Across the Breadth of Time 

The Earth Gallery features the first permanent T-Rex exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that focus on forces at work in shaping and reshaping the Earth. Knowing natural history is the way we can educate museum visitors on how long it took the planet to give us what we now inhabit. 
  
Universe Gallery: Its Beginning and Majesty

The Universe Gallery showcases humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space. It features exhibits that show how all of life, as we know it now, found its atomic beginnings in the stars in space. It enfolds visitors in the fundamental elements and forces at play in the universe. The Universe Gallery includes a mini, teaching planetarium that brings guests closer to the wonders of the universe.

Technology Gallery: The Exuberance of Life

The Technology Gallery is the largest of all the galleries. It is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. This gallery presents technology not as a mere tool, gadget or industrial advancement but as means to flesh out human values, to help us become better humans. 

********

 The Earth Gallery: Nature Across the Breadth of Time is what interest me I would really like to see if there's really a dinosaur in the past life and how they live and breed. How big are they and is are those foot prints even real!? I watched Jurassic Park movie, there's a part there where the dinosaur is being breed through science and its really adorable. And always wonder if we could do that in our current life. And I was fascinated at the Dinosaur movie at Disney channel when i watched it. The part where its rains meteorite i always wonder if that's really the reason how the dinosaur vanish.
