Wow! Our exhibits team was hard at play tweaking current exhibits and creating new ones for our 2018 winter light experience for kids, IlluminOdyssey (open Nov. 2 – Jan. 6).

Scenes from the CuriOdyssey workshop*:

The entire workshop is bathed in blacklight!

What can we do with these glowing beads?

Wouldn’t a glow table be fun?

Different foods change color under blacklight! These are coconut shavings (left) and mini marshmallows (right).

Playing with color and creating a village to explore on a larger scale, what an adventure!

This string pattern is mesmerizing.

*May or may not be featured in the final IlluminOdyssey 2018 exhibit series.

So much is in store for you and your family, experience IlluminOdyssey this winter!
