From Scientist to Superhero: 3 Must-See Educational Exhibits in LV
Families who are planning a trip to Vegas can be sure that there are plenty of kid- and family-friendly activities to keep even the youngest of family members entertained. More specifically, there are a number of educational exhibits in the city to keep you and yours occupied for days. These range from the purely fun and fantastical to the serious and scientific. Here’s a look at a couple of the best ones.
Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
The Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) is an interactive exhibit that gives visitors a closer look at the world of the Avengers from Iron Man’s amazing suits to the history behind the cinematic universe. It’s highly interactive, which encourages kids and adults alike to get their superhero on. Under the guise of play, exhibit visitors can get trained to become an official representative/agent of the S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
CSI: the Experience
You and your family can get your Sherlock Holmes on when you visit CSI: The Experience gives visitors an inside look at forensic science through the lens of the popular TV show. The tour takes you and your family on a journey through crime labs and crime scenes. You’ll learn firsthand about the principles and tools of forensic science from DNA testing to firearms. As far as learning exhibits in Las Vegas go, this one’s one of the most detailed and interactive.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit
The Titanic may be the most famous shipwreck of all time, and the Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition gives ardent historians an up-close-and-personal look at 250 of the most interesting artifacts recovered from the downed ocean liner. These pieces were recovered from the ocean floor, two-and-a-half miles from the surface of the water.
Artifacts include pieces of luggage, unopened champagne bottles and whistles from the ship. Visitors have described these artifacts as “haunting” due to the stories they tell about the lives that were lost in the Atlantic on that fateful April evening. Replicas of the grand staircase, the boarding passes and other elements lend an air of authenticity to this exhibit.
