Mythbusters Explode at MSI Chicago with New Exhibit

Chicago, IL, USA (March 14, 2012) /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The world premiere of MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition—an interactive exhibit experience modeled after the Discovery Channel Emmy®-nominated series—opens at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago on March 15, 2012.

The exhibit was created by Discovery Communications and Exhibits Development Group, in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates. It will run at MSI through Sept. 3, 2012.

In the Discovery Channel TV series MythBusters, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman bring their expertise in special effects—along with co-hosts Tory Belleci, Grant Imahara and Kari Byron—to relentlessly bust or confirm myths through the scientific method. Co-hosts Adam and Jamie were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests receive a true MythBusting experience, but if you think you need to know the show to get into the exhibit action, that's the first myth to bust. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition will show everyone—even MythBusting newbies—how to uncover the truth behind some of science's popular myths and have a great time while doing it.

In the exhibit, guests learn about science myths, the MythBusters and what experimentation is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences and live demonstrations.

Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. , the exhibit will officially open to the public at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago in true MythBusters style with a very unique ribbon-cutting ceremony—featuring all five of the show's hosts including Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Following the opening, from 11 a.m. – noon, all five of the show's hosts will autograph cast photos.
