New Nauticus Exhibit Celebrates Summer Travel
Planes, trains, automobiles and more: Going Places opens this weekend.
Just in time for a record-setting summer travel season, Nauticus is introducing a 5,000 square-foot family exhibit that celebrates travel and transportation. Created by the renowned Scitech in Perth, Australia, Going Places: The Technology of Transport is a fully interactive exhibition that allows visitors to fly a plane, ride a hovercraft, race a recumbent bicycle, and learn to fly a drone. Guests also learn how to drive a train, race sailing yachts, and pack luggage efficiently. One DIY station allows guests to design their own city and transportation grid, while another challenges families to design their own car – from engine to body shape.
“Nauticus is home to a battleship, a fleet of sailboats, a schooner and a cruise ship terminal,” said Stephen E. Kirkland, Nauticus’ executive director. “This exhibit seemed like an absolutely perfect fit for us. And after what our community has been through this past year, we thought it was time to have a little fun.”
Going Places opens Saturday, June 12th. The exhibition will remain at Nauticus through October 10th, 2021. Access is included in Nauticus’ general admission. As always, Nauticus members are free. Tickets and additional details are available online at https://nauticus.org/
