Explora (Albuquerque, NM). For those who are interested, the book has sold 2,300 copies, and 17,000 people have read some portion of it online in the free edition.

Plants! Natural Materials! Review of Explora!, a Peaceful, Delightful Science Center

Museum 2.0

So imagine my delight to visit Explora in Albuquerque. The director of exhibitions, Betsy Adamson, explained to me that they'd done research and found that the walls, which give the sense of an adobe hedge maze, slowed people down and helped them focus in on single exhibits for longer periods of time.
