You will have to visit the exhibition in person to read all about the art pieces. After all, I can’t really show you ALL the exhibit, and to be honest, you truly need to see it in person in order to really appreciate the details of each piece.

This one made me pause and think of what it represented to me. After a few moments, my mind seemed to consider this represented fears that hold us back.

The Canada Science and Technology Museum is known as a hands-on type of museum, and this exhibit also includes a fun hands-on section for visitors of all ages. I’ll share some of the fun activities in the last blog about this must-see exhibit.
