Exhibit Hall – Level 4
Our Planet offers a flurry of interactive experiences through which guests can experience weather and earth science.
Brace yourself in the winds of a Category 1 hurricane, shake things up in an earthquake simulator, and find out what it feels like inside of a cloud! Plus, try out the green screen and report the weather at the WFTV 9 Severe Weather Center, or get a close-up look at the planets at Science on a Sphere.

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!

Explore our planet’s dynamic landscape and weather, tour the solar system and understand the complex relationship between our planet and its sister worlds.
