New exhibit coming to Michigan Science Center this fall

Detroit is becoming the fourth U.S. city to host an award-winning science exhibit on inventions. The exhibit, 1001 Inventions: Untold Stories from a Golden Age of Innovation, is opening at the Michigan Science Center on October 7.

1001 Inventions explores the legacy of scientific discovery and innovation during the golden age of Muslim Civilization, beginning in the 7th century and following the story through a thousand years of history and progress.

The exhibition has seven zones, spreading nearly 9,000 sq. ft., that feature a number of hands-on workshops and activities explaining how the Muslim civilization influenced things such as towns, schools and hospitals.

The exhibition has premiered in other cities, such as London, Washington, D.C., Abu Dhabi, New York and  UNESCO's headquarters in Paris, to name a few.
