My mom and I took a trip to the Museum of Science in Boston yesterday, and had a total blast interacting with the exhibits and taking photos along the way. Below, find my Instagram photo diary of the trip.
Hey folks! Alex here, HERpothesis editor. I'm going to be all over Instagram tonight sharing photos from a trip I took to Boston's @museumofscience with my mom yesterday. We had such a blast checking this place out, and I love how well the museum uses art and interactivity to engage audiences (of all ages!) with science. First off is this snapshot of me hanging out with my own shadow Peter-Pan-take in their permanent exhibit The Light House. This exhibit lets visitors play with light and color separating and reflecting to SEE how light really works. 🌈🔦
Alex at @museumofscience part 2: They have a hallway of optical illusions in their Seeing is Deceiving exhibit, including all kinds of spinning and color-changing devices, and paintings like this one from the 19th century called "Vanity" by Anonymous. Do you see a skull or a couple sitting at a table? 💀👫🥂
