MythBusters at Fleet Science Center

MythBusters at Fleet Science Center will be open daily (including holidays!) through Monday, September 3, 2018.

Does toast always land butter-side down? What keeps you drier: running in the rain or walking through it? Can you really pull a tablecloth off of a fully set table without disturbing a dish? In this amazing hands-on exhibition, you can put these myths to the test—just as the team from the popular MythBusters TV show has done for years!

  • Use scientific observations and your own curiosity to search for the truth behind some commonly held beliefs.
  • Explore the Blueprint Room and relive some of the show’s most exciting moments.
  • Test your hypothesis in The Workshop and decide whether the myth is plausible, busted or confirmed.
  • Catch a live demonstration on the Demo Stage. There are multiple shows throughout the day, and the variables (people) are always changing, so results can change hour to hour!
  • Submit your own myths, and you could see them being tested on future episodes of MythBusters!

On display in the expanded upstairs galleries, the exhibition will overflow with hands-on props and gadgets from the show. The Fleet invites you to try your hand at busting some new myths, as well as some old favorites!
