From a Vandergraph generator to a giant xylophone, SDSM& T's Museum in Motion provides many hands- on science and engineering exhibits for children of all ages. Both children and adults enjoy the exhibits that provide real- world examples to better understand the laws of physics. Museum visitors can learn while they play. Exhibits include optical illusions, giant bubble machines, the spin table and spinning chair, a giant xylophone, a Bernouli's Law cone, a large sand pendulum, and a big kaleidoscope. Other exhibits allow visitors to take apart old computers, telephones, toasters, answering machines and other devices to explore what is inside them. The Museum in Motion, which is located in the SDSM& T Old Gym ( next to the Museum of Geology), will remain open through Labor Day. Hours are 9: 00 a. m. to 4: 00 p. m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is $ 2 per person or $ 10 per family. Special group rates for non- profit organizations and child care providers are available.
