Roboworld closed in June 2022 and was replaced by an exhibit about Mars exploration. Some of the display pieces were moved to other areas of the museum: the basketball robot to sports exhibit; Andy the "RoboThespian" was moved to the lobby; and the movie robots were moved to the lobby of the neighboring Omnimax theater.
