Today’s Hours

Science Aglow introduces the electromagnetic spectrum, with an emphasis on visible light and its interactions with mirrors, motion, and time.

Glimpse the illusion of infinity as light bounces back and forth between mirrored surfaces. See your shadow like never before as it is temporarily captured on our glow-in-the-dark wall. Make a work of “light” art by sculpting light with prisms, mirrors, and lenses. Discover the concept of radiation as information, while exploring and experimenting with optics and the physics of light.

Exhibit highlights:

  • Enter the Passage to Infinity for an illuminating light illusion
  • Strange Lenses allow visitors to manipulate and distort light for different perspectives on sight
  • See how other creatures see light and color differently than the way we perceive
