Discovery Place opens all new exhibits this weekend, free to the public!

The Discovery Place crew have been hard at work retooling and renovating for some 18 months now, and this weekend it all wraps up with the opening of World Alive (an aquarium and rainforest exhibition) and Fantastic Frogs.

Best of all, admission is free! Saturday is for Discovery Place members only, and Sunday is open to the public.

We stopped in a little ways back to check out some of the new additions, including a few of my favorites: a 3,000 rpm gyroscope that you have to feel to believe, a couple Microsoft Surface installations, and a somewhat internet-famous multi-touch sound and music controller called a Reactable, which Discovery Place was lucky enough to snag once the creators started selling them last year.

Check out the video above for our tour, and clips of the new installations. And come on out this weekend, we’ll be there!
