Created by the Science Museum of Minnesota, Raise the Roof: An Exhibit About Buildings presents an in-depth look at the architecture, engineering, physics and history of buildings and the often-overlooked impact they have on our everyday lives. Dwellings and structures from throughout time and around the world are on display, along with hands-on activities and interactive components that bring astonishing feats of engineering to life before your eyes. See the Bigelow Aerospace model of an inflatable space habitat and watch the DRASH portable shelter deploy, just like those used in the field by the military. Learn about the science and art of demolition, and team up with friends and family to create your own amazing structure with what you have learned!
