Discovery Children’s Museum Las Vegas | Going Places | Travel Destinations
Neuronic has collaborated with the Discovery Children’s Museum of Las Vegas (one of the largest children’s museums in the country) and Heartland Scenic Studios, to create Travel Destinations an exhibit within its new Going Places – the Technology of Transport destination. The exhibit allows museum visitors to take a virtual trip to multiple cities across the globe.
Going Places is an interactive science exhibition that will explore the technology humans have developed for travel. Human modes of transportation have changed so much in just the past 150 years. It is exciting to present an exhibition that allows visitors to dive deep into these innovations, get behind the wheel (literally!),and speculate on where we will go in the next 150 years. If you have ever wanted to pilot an airship, ride on a hovercraft, or control traffic in a city, now is your big chance!
Explore how different modes of transportation have shaped society and get hands-on with a multitude of challenging interactives. Fly a plane, ride a hovercraft, race your friend on a recumbent bicycle, or learn to fly an airship! Visitors are the drivers in Going Places’ interactive exhibits—providing the chance to experience transportation in ways they never dreamed possible. As well as exploring the technology that gets us around everyday, visitors will also explore the way that travel has shaped the social fabric of our time. Visitors will even see new technology and get a glimpse of where our future is headed.
17 exhibits and eight information kiosks will detail technology pioneered by humans to make the farthest reaches of our planet accessible. The key messages of this exhibition are: observe, understand and use an incredible range of travel technology to see how it makes our lives easier and better, Visitors will also learn how the Earth’s awesome size and natural processes, like gravity, wind, currents, waves, friction, and changing landscapes are overcome by the ingenious designs, researched and developed over time.
The three-story museum offers 58,000 feet of nine-themed exhibition halls with a 26,000 square feet of interactive hands-on core exhibits.
