Talking Transparent Woman

The museum is actually very cool for all ages. A lot to see and do with an Imax theater and many different exhibits and science-related fun. The gift shop is good too.

Transparent Woman, Walk-through Heart

Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland, Oregon, moved away from the "boring" World Forestry Center area a couple of years ago into a big new (actually old) factory building on Portland's East Side. The transparent woman is back from repairs, and is really cool! The walk-through heart is there, it's inside now to protect it from vandals.
