The Matrix

One of the hands on activities in the Earth Gallery is in an area that examines the metamorphic forces shaping the earth. This screen allows the visitor to morph their face. Visitors include thoroughly disreputable scoundrels.


It can start to feel like something out of The Matrix. With Morpheus being a white guy with genetic curse red cheeks.


"I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one who has to walk through it." 


The exhibit continues on.


An artificial cave has been created inside the Earth Gallery, with a booklet of information on cave features at the entrance. It feels quite like you might expect. Though you don't have to squeeze through tight spots to get in here. I'll pick up here tomorrow.
