Why does dropped toast always seem to land buttered-side down? What if a plane tried taking off on a conveyor belt moving in the opposite direction? Have you heard you can make a canoe out of duct tape?

Like the Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated show, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition will show you how to uncover the truth behind many popular myths. Can you blow a brick house down? Will running in the rain keep you drier? Think you can hang off a ledge like an action hero? DON’T TRY THESE AT HOME! Test these theories and more at MSI—the only place that lets you become a real MythBuster!
