The museum will feature 20 hands-on exhibits where visitors can build and race handheld vehicles, discover bird characteristics such as egg sizes and wingspan lengths, create their own stop motion animations and propel balls adorned with the images of “Angry Birds” characters to test structures with a giant slingshot.
