Heavy Metal in Motion

Heavy Metal in Motion at Tellus Science Museum

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2016

10 AM – 5 PM

Members: FREE   |   Non-Members: Regular Admission
Suitable for all ages.

Get ready for a day of noisy fun at Tellus as helicopters land, engines crank, and all sorts of vehicles converge on the Museum grounds. Heavy Metal in Motion is a popular (and educational) family event that brings the Millar Science in Motion gallery to life with antique cars, vintage motorcycles, heavy machinery, military vehicles, fire engines, helicopters, and more. In most cases, you will be able to get into or get on these exceptional vehicles!

From big machines and photo ops to kid’s activities and family train rides, Heavy Metal in Motion is an event for the kid in all of us. Expected vehicles this year include vintage Army helicopters, replicas of the Batmobile and the Jurassic Park Jeep, and experimental electric vehicles. The Store will have a sale, and the Café will be serving traditional cook-out fare on the back patio.

Make sure to join us at Heavy Metal in Motion for an up close and personal experience with machines that move things… and us!
