With the increase in number and strength of hurricanes over recent years, it’s important to know how to deal with these natural phenomena. Learn what it takes to predict, prepare for and protect against a hurricane!
Enjoy many exciting activities at the exhibit, including:
• Climb inside a full-scale P-3 hurricane hunter aircraft and experience what it’s like for pilots to fly through a swirling storm
• Test your skills against an impending disaster with the exhibit’s Hurricane Preparedness game
• Design, build and test a model house against hurricane-force winds
The exhibit also includes a 20-foot-long display case featuring artifacts from Hurricane Andrew, which made landfall in South Florida in 1992.
Admission to the “Hurricanes” exhibit is included with regular museum admission.
