The Mind Museum Presents the Science Circus: Step Right Up!

Ladies and gentlemen, the Science Circus has come to town!

Philippines - Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the latest traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum, showcasing the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits thatdeceive the senses and boggle  the mind. Be ready to #EnterTheScienceCircus this coming October 28, 2016!

While the nearly 250 year history of the circus abounds with awe inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high flying aerial artists, to death defying daredevil  the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a 
circus by focusing on  the  mind’s "acrobatic" perceptual tricks.

As the  guests  enter  the  exhibition,  they  are welcomed by a  festive,  colorful façade  which  sets  the tone  for  the  sights  and sounds  they  are  about to experience.  These  interactive  exhibits  are displayed  simultaneously in three  adjacent  Rings.  Guests  can go in any of the  Rings in the  order they please.

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems?

Can your brain produce motion where thereis none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the "blindness" of your mind’s eye.

Ring  Two  highlights Pieces of Incredible  Engineering,  where guests  can  engage  their  minds in puzzles  and  relish how  math  and art come together. This central area is  animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of  delightful  secrets  that we can  uncover, to discover  more  about  ourselves  and  the  world around us.
