To commemorate our 80th anniversary, the Museum presents this exhibit featuring 80 rarely displayed artifacts from the Museum’s extensive Collection, carefully selected by MSI curators.
Many of these items will ignite your memories from past exhibits—like a gigantic Paul Bunyan statue and TAM, the Transparent Anatomical Manikin—but many of these special items are going to be revealed for the first time! See how modern-day GPS started with the 1909 Jones Live Map Meter. Check out the engine from a British Supermarine Spitfire plane, made famous during World War II.
Not all of these artifacts on display are historic. Some are cutting-edge innovations, including a Velodyne LiDAR sensor navigation system, which is used for 3D mobile data collection and will be demonstrated as part of the exhibition.
This exhibit closed on February 8, 2015.
The 80 at 80 exhibit is sponsored by Pepsi.
