July 4th 1999 Blow Down

-Click Here for Current Headlines-


 (continued) The Blowdown exhibit combines the resources of numerous state and national organizations. A Digital Map Window in the exhibit is part of the Science Museumís partnership with NASA, extending NASAís Digital Earth Project and helping visitors understand how satellite images are used to map the Earthís surface. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the United States Forest Service, and numerous other state agencies contributed information to the exhibit. Photographers, including Jim Brandenberg (National Geographic), have donated photos to the exhibit, offering museum-goers dramatic forest views. Local and statewide media outlets, including the Star Tribune, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Cook County New Herald, and the Duluth News Tribune have news accounts of the Blowdown included in the exhibit. High definition television footage of the Blowdown area will be added later this summer.

The Science Museum of Minnesota is the stateís most popular museum attraction, reaching more than one million people each year with current, relevant information about science and our world. Located at 120 West Kellogg Boulevard in St. Paul, the new museum includes permanent galleries on dinosaurs, the Mississippi River, the human body, physical sciences and experiments, and the museumís 1.75 million piece collection. The new Blowdown exhibit is part of the Science Museumís new effort to create new exhibits in response to science topics in the news.

The Science Museum of Minnesota is open daily through September 4, 2000, and open Tuesday through Sunday in the fall. For directions, hours, and information, call (651) 221-9444 or visit
