Movie Night - The Monuments Men
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
During World War II, the Nazis steal countless pieces of art and hide them away. Some over-the-hill art scholars, historians, architects and other experts form a unit to retrieve as many of the stolen masterpieces as possible. The mission becomes even more urgent when the team learns about Hitler's "Nero Decree," which orders destruction of the artworks if the Third Reich falls. Caught in a race against time, the men risk their lives to protect some of mankind's greatest achievements.

Exploring Virtual Reality
11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
What Can VR Accomplish?

The “Exploring Virtual Reality” presentation series will highlight Virtual Reality as much more than a peripheral of the gaming industry. Virtual reality is an innovation with the capability to demonstrate what today’s cutting edge technology is capable of.

Virtual Reality has the capability to make a person feel present in another place, time, or reality, to shift a person’s perspective. Given VR’s capacity to manipulate the user experience, this technology has become a powerful tool in diverse fields. NASA uses VR to help train astronauts for extravehicular activity (EVA). Surgeons use VR to practice surgical procedures and study a patient’s anatomy in greater detail. VR has been used to successfully treat pain in burn victims, fear in those with acute phobia, and various symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and anxiety. VR is used to transport its audience to unfamiliar places, build empathy, and demonstrate the power of perspective. 

Included with Regular Museum Admission ($12) | Free for Members

Barbie Gets with the Program

While it may seem radical to imagine Barbie computing in the ’70s, the computer science field was actually far more gender balanced four decades ago than it is today. Experience the history of gender and computing through the lens of computer playsets from the 1970’s to today. Each is paired with the operable machines that inspired them.

Open April 1, 2017- September 3rd, 2017
