The Science Museum of Minnesota has played an integral role in the Twin Cities arts and entertainment community for the past century, helping countless people discover the world through science.

Stop in during the first half of 2009 for the Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk Omnitheater film and two exciting exhibits—Water and Goosebumps! The Science of Fear. For the remaining half of 2009, don’t miss the new and improved Titanic exhibit.

Experience the thrilling twists and turns of whitewater rafting through the heart of the Grand Canyon while exploring your role as a water steward during the Omnitheater film Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk (opened Jan. 9). The film, from the makers of Everest and The Alps, features renowned river advocate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., author and explorer Wade Davis, and their teenage daughters embarking on an unforgettable trip. See how the Colorado River— the source of power and water for 25 million Americans—is at its lowest level since measurements began 85 years ago, and learn how you can help reverse the looming water crisis in the U.S. The Colorado is certainly not the only body of water in danger in this water crisis.

The perfect complement to Grand Canyon Adventure, the Water exhibit will leave you with a renewed appreciation for this essential resource and a better understanding of the ways you can help protect and conserve H2O. Combination exhibit gallery and Omnitheater tickets are available.

Another exciting exhibit is Goosebumps! The Science of Fear. Learn through playful animations how the brain and body work together to respond to danger.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will return to the Science Museum in June, bigger and better than ever. The 14,000-square-foot exhibit will feature dozens of artifacts recently recovered from the wreck site, amazingly detailed room re-creations, and a gallery devoted to Minnesota’s connections to the historic voyage. As with past exhibits, admission to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be timed and dated; visitors will be asked to choose a specific date for their visit when they purchase their tickets, as well as a time to enter the Titanic exhibit. Titanica, an Omnitheater film, will run at the same time as the exhibit.

The Science Museum of Minnesota serves more than one million visitors each year with its hands-on exhibits, giant screen films, special events, and educational programs. It is located at 120 West Kellogg Boulevard in downtown St. Paul. For specific directions, parking information, hours, show times and ticket information, call 651-221-9444 or visit
