MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition

Exhibit open: October 6, 2016 – January 15, 2017

Mall of America Mythbusters

Can you really huff and puff and blow a house down? Will running in the rain keep you drier than walking? Can you react fast enough to dodge a paintball? Don’t try these things at home—try them this fall at Mall of America®!

MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, presented by Subway, is a true MythBusters creation, with flying airplanes, duct tape canoes and rain that glows. It took over five years of research, guessing and testing to translate Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated television series, MythBusters, into a hands-on indoor exhibition. The result? An exhibition that pushes the boundaries farther than ever before!

The exhibition features more than 100 original props as well as tools, blueprints, interactive videos and illustrations straight from the hands of the MythBusters themselves.

Start the MythBusting process in the iconic Blueprint Room modeled after the TV set in San Francisco. From there, move into the Workshop and engage in a dozen interactive experiments—some familiar and some new. It’s your chance to become MythBuster! Test your theories, watch live demonstrations of classic myths and explore authentic props and gadgets direct from the Mythbusters show.
