Collection Exhibitions


On extended view
Main Building - 1st Floor Gallery

Imagine & discover a world you can’t see!

Visitors can play with magnets to explore how materials behave differently at different sizes; use foam construction pieces to make a large model of a tiny structure called a carbon nanotube; listen, look, and touch to discover nano all around you; and take on the challenge of trying to create a stable nano.

The exhibit is made possible by the Princeton Center for Complex Materials in partnership with the Princeton Public Library and the NJ State Museum.
