There are plenty of other things to discover at the museum, including exhibits about wind turbines, computers, robotics, and nanotechnology (the science of incredibly small devices). By testing out prototypes, there is even an opportunity for visitors to help develop an upcoming exhibit about the technology, math, and science behind Disney-Pixar's groundbreaking computer animated films. There are also wonderful presentations in the museum's planetarium and IMAX theater.
Speaking of the sea, among the films now showing on the 50-foot-tall IMAX dome screen is The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea, an eye-popping look at colorful tropical reefs. Dead Sea Scrolls: Life in Ancient Times Museum of Science 1 Science Park, Boston 617-723-2500
