Jacksonville, Fla. — January 25, 2022 — The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) today announced its newest traveling exhibition, Playing With Light, presented by Imagine Exhibitions. The exhibition opens January 30 and will run through April 24.
This interactive exhibition features more than 20,000 individual LED lights illuminating a tunnel that visitors can walk through, manipulating the lights to follow their every movement. Created by the renowned Scitech in Perth, Australia and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, this enlightening new exhibition will engage visitors with stimulating light and visualization experiences.
Full-body interactive exhibits will encourage visitors to engage in an array of exciting and amazing light, laser and lens-based experiences, including freezing their shadows, mixing colored lights, discovering how to shake their own hand and making a laser beam bounce down a stream of water.
Visitors are also encouraged to tinker with table-top style exhibits involving light islands, fibre-optics and lenses, paint with light using special virtual paint brushes and design unique drawings on iPads and project them on the wall.
“Playing With Light is an exciting, interactive exhibition that perfectly complements our celebration of 80 years of illuminating science and history within the Northeast Florida community,” said Bruce Fafard, CEO of the Museum of Science & History. “Our commitment to lifelong learning is exemplified in this new exhibit, highlighting both science and technological components that will engage members and guests of all ages. We are looking forward to inviting visitors in to experience this one-of-a-kind exhibit.”
Tom Zaller, CEO of Imagine Exhibitions shared, “Imagine Exhibitions is proud to partner with Scitech to bring Playing With Light to the Museum of Science & History. Playing With Light is a beautiful and truly fun exhibition that encourages visitors to play while gaining a unique insight into current light technology.”
Playing With Light is open for a limited engagement through April 24. We aim to ensure the health and safety of staff and guests. In accordance with CDC guidelines, masks are strongly encouraged inside the Museum for all patrons 2+. To learn more or to secure tickets, visit themosh.org.
