Our Planet

Exhibit Hall – Level 4

Our Planet offers a flurry of interactive experiences through which guests can experience weather and earth science. Shake things up in an earthquake simulator and find out what it feels like inside of a cloud!

WFTV 9 Severe Weather Center

Become a meteorologist for the day and show “those guys” on TV how it’s really done! This experience is a working replica of the actual set used on WFTV’s weather forecasts. Learn how to put a weather forecast together using the same tools a meteorologist, then you can practice delivering it in front of a green screen – putting you right in the action as WFTV’s newest chief meteorologist!
