Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, get your tickets now to learn the secrets never told before about the illusion and reality, magic and science of the circus.
Yes, the circus has come to town . . .
Send in the clowns
“Circus! Science under the Big Top” is at the Waterloo Region Museum in Kitchener.
Catch this hands-on exhibit from the Ontario Science Centre before show packs up and leaves town after May 5.
It is said to appeal to “everyone who has wondered what it would be like to run away and join the circus.”
Visitors learn how math, physics and anatomy make circus feats possible.
This has been a “very popular exhibit with more than 7,000 people visiting during March Break,” said Sean Jasmins, the museum’s marketing and communications supervisor.
