When most people think of San Jose real estate, they think of technology and innovation. One of the ways to experience that is to spend a day at the Tech Museum of Innovation. Now in its 20th year, the Tech has brought the world of innovation to life for individuals, families, and school groups for an entire generation. The museum continues to work on its exhibits to bring engaging and exciting exhibits and programs to the next generation of future scientists.
People of all ages from San Jose homes will find exhibits to catch their attention. Body Worlds Decoded, for example, is a fascinating exhibit with the models of the human body designed by Gunther von Hagens’ Institute for Plastination. The Tech puts its own spin on the models with immersive smartphones, programmed to let museum visitors interact with the models in three dimensions.
Everyone from San Jose Homes are Welcome at the Tech
The Cyber Detectives is an interactive exhibit, which teaches visitors about Internet safety. It’s a great way for kids 12 and older to practice their cyber savvy and for parents to see how their kids interface with online technology. Another super fun exhibit is Reboot Reality, which allows visitors to experience virtual reality and even create a virtual painting.
The Tech is located in downtown San Jose real estate, and visitors are welcome every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed from September 4th through 14th for maintenance, as well as Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If you have a household member with sensory sensitivities, be sure to check out the sensory-friendly hours. These special times include lower audio in the IMAX theater and in exhibits, rooms with calm-down kits, and a smaller crowd capacity. General admission is $25 for adults and $20 for students, seniors 65 and older, and children ages three through 17. IMAX films cost extra. For people who want to visit often, a membership is a great idea. They start at $60 for individuals and $140 for families.
