SF Weekly's Description
Interactive museum focusing on all kinds of technologies.
Tips from foursquare
After years of planning, the museum opened in 1990 in the old San Jose convention center. In 1998 it opened in a larger 3 floor venue where it holds four major theme galleries and an IMAX theatre.
Visit the To Infinity and Beyond Exhibit to scan radio frequencies from outer space. You can even listen to the audio recording and view the images that were sent out on the Voyager 1 spacecraft too.
Check out the Jet Pack simulator, then go the RadioShack at 779 Story Road and get some So Right stuff to try to build your own.
The Star Wars exhibit is great. You can see the original costumes, models, behind the scenes videos and learn about the physics of Star Wars.
The BODY WORLDS EXHIBIT comes to the Tech Museum every 3-5 years. It's amazing and probably the only reason for me to visit this venue!
