We're all used to natural science museums with the required dioramas, and I LOVE these museums. The North Carolina Museum has innovative methods in theirs. The bonus with THIS museum is magic when you cross the bridge to the research museum where scientists and visitors interact. In a nutshell, visitors can participate in research and experiments, hold and study specimens, watch a wondrous display of science within the Daily Planet, and be enthralled by interactive displays. It's hard to explain, but there is also a mathematical representation (suspended by the ceiling and we could NOT figure out how it works) of bees moving, geese flying, vortexes, black holes, and more. It leaves you wondering HOW they do it, and you want to learn even more.
