Michigan Science Center Welcomes New Earth. Wind. Weather. Exhibit

Detroit's science hub is set to teach kids the wonders of our planet's weather systems with its latest exhibit.

Our little blue planet is quite extraordinary. Not only is it the only one in our solar system that sustains life, it has the capability to produce some of the coolest (and wickedest) weather patterns, too.

And that’s the inspiration of the Michigan Science Center’s latest gallery installation: Earth. Wind. Weather.

This exhibit, sponsored by General Motors, features 10 interactive areas and puts museum guests up close and personal with Mother Nature’s most impressive weather phenomena, including tornados, avalanches, geysers and more.

In addition to learning about the weather, guests will also get the chance to control ocean waves, force rift zones and create clouds.

And the exhibit isn’t limited to Earth’s weather patterns. Earth. Wind. Weather. will also take pint-sized scientists beyond our atmosphere to explore Jupiter’s “otherworldly atmosphere,” too!

Earth. Wind. Weather. is set to open to the public on April 24, 2021, with a series of special events, including tornado spin art, temperature mapping and a science stage show.

The exhibit is open during regular museum hours from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday-Sunday. Admission to Earth. Wind. Weather. is free with the purchase of Mi-Sci admission, which starts at $18/adults and $14/kids 2-17.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, scheduled tickets must be purchased in advanced. Guests are required to wear a face mask and maintain appropriate social distance from other groups.
