    When in the Skyscraper exhibit, make sure you know the difference between the Curtain Wall Test and the Wind Tunnel Lab. Curtain Wall is the one you go in and sit!

    This zany science museum is home to the first Hoberman sphere. Though geared toward littles (the calendar is packed with interactive learning events), it brings out the childish nerd in any adult.

    Over a decade ago, the US Department of Energy installed a wind turbine at LSC to demonstrate the feasibility of using wind as a source of energy in urban areas. Check it out from the 4th floor deck.

    Do NOT do the interactive movie. A DVD movie carried to a classroom(theater) and played for you to watch a child's movie. The most interaction you get is putting the seat down to sit.

    Start at the top and work your way down. See an IMAX movie. The cafe is a bit expensive as you might expect, but a nice selection beyond burgers and pizza. Read more
