about the exhibit

Measure height, distance, volume and more in Measurement Rules, the interactive exhibit that introduces visitors to various units of measurement. Master the basics and then begin to compare, classify, and categorize different ways to measure using standard and non-standard tools.

  • Take a walk on a treadmill connected to a large odometer that tracks how many yards visitors walk during the exhibit
  • Find out how many chickens you weigh
  • Count Five Mississippis and see how close you can get to doing it in five actual seconds
