POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 14, 2014 Page9 /! -i i] I ! 00ociall00 00cene by j00lngela Cornacchio The Museum of Science is host to many exhibits and not all are just for the kiddies. The "Innovation in the Art of Food Chef Ferran Adria" has great incite to the history of our favorite dishes. (Photo by Angela Cornacchio) Socially Scene Reviewed ... Since the kids have been On school vacation I thought, why not join in on the fun? This past week Soc/a//y Scene visited one of Boston's best, the Museum of Science. When you arrive, there are hallways everywhere; green wing, blue wing, red wing OH MY! Two of the highlighted exhibits cur- rently are the "Butterfly Gar- den" and "Human Body," so instead of trying to figure a direction Socially Scene went straight for butterflies in flight. The second you walk in it feels like spring has sprung! There are beautiful colors fluttering around, lush green plants, and exotic everything everywhere. It was almost impossible to focus on all the information available when there were so many species of butterflies ruling the room. Every few feet there are signs to describe the breath- taking creatures: the pierc- ing blue "Morpho Peleides," silver-studded "Hypna Cly- temnestra," and a swallow- tail "Papilio Thoas" were just a few. It was amazing to hear the tenant of the exhibit just gush knowledge about all the residents in the habi- tat. I thought the billions of ladybugs were there just to add to the beauty, but they are actually brought in fre- quently to help keep a cer- tain bacteria from forming. Oh Mother Nature and her mysterious ways! There was a sign attached to a full-length mirror just before you exit: "Check your- self for 'hitchhiking' butter- flies before leaving." It made sense; you have to be ever so careful with each move you make to not step on any of the butterflies. When you enter, it's to their world. Just outside the exhibit were a lot of "Can You See" type games on the wall -- the things you can learn about the mind and what it chooses to see. Just after was a "holasehold-type" ex- hibit where you could see the science behind -- why does a sink drain swirl the way it does, why does food spoil, and a little experiment with temperature of a coffee machine and microwave. Just as Socially Scene arrived at the prehistoric panel, time was up. The Museum of Science is an all- day event and another Bos- ton landmark with so much to offer. Currently in the Omni Theater: Jerusalem, Rocky Mountain Express through April 1 I th, The Hu- man Body through April, and Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk returns April 12 th, The Charles Hayden Planetarium "is featuring Magic Tree House, Moons: ( Real Estate Matt6o Gallo Appraisals Sales & Rentals 376 North Street Boston, MA 02113 (617) 523-2100 * Fax (617) 523-3530 World of Mystery, Laser Beatles and so much more!
