Wander through a maze of mirrors. The Phillip and Patricia Frost Science Museum in Miami is opening a new exhibit featuring a giant mirror maze this fall. The exhibit, titled A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature, will take visitors on a puzzling journey of mathematical patterns. Get lost among the mirrors and you just might find yourself, again and again.
A Mirror Maze will open this fall on Saturday, Oct. 12 on the first floor of the Frost Science Museum in Miami. The exhibit will run through Sunday, April 12, 2020.
The exhibit features a mirror maze and an immersive theater with interactive elements. Try numerical activities like drawing spiral patterns and examining the symmetry of the human face. Explore topics like Voronoi patterns, Fibonacci Numbers, and the Golden Ratio.
Hidden deep in the maze, surrounded by repeating dead ends, is a secret room for wanderers to discover. Inside you will find "bonus puzzles and artifacts," according to the museum. To find out what exactly lies in the hidden room, you'll have to find it yourself.
According to the museum, highlights of the exhibit include a mirror that projects patterns on your body and a digital screen for drawing patterns. Visitors can even compose a piece of music using symmetry.
