DESCRIPTION

Introducing Rube Goldberg: The World of Hilarious Invention!

Open September 24, 2022 – January 8, 2023 the Rube Goldberg: The World of Hilarious Invention exhibit contains a collection of new 3D, life-size machines and hands-on, interactive components that connect Rube’s iconic cartoon contraptions to the way things work in the physical world. These experiences provide insight into the legacy of Rube Goldberg and how classic engineering principles can be reimagined as entry points for deeper exploration of STEAM concepts for 21st century learning.

Inspired by Rube’s original illustrations, visitors can activate and create crazy chain-reaction contraptions that use everyday objects to complete simple tasks in the most overcomplicated, inefficient and hilarious ways possible! Rube Goldberg machines are many things, but they aren’t perfect. Find the fun in failure as you step into the role of illustrator, storyteller and inventor.

Rube Goldberg: The World of Hilarious Invention is locally sponsored by the Dart Foundation and The James & Kimberly Currie Foundation.
