I'm a huge fan of science and have lived in Michigan my entire life yet, for whatever reason, I've never been to the Michigan Science Center in Detroit. Since most of the exhibits at the Michigan Science Center are geared towards kids, I'll have to use my son as an excuse to check out the new exhibition called POPnology.

POPnology is a really unique experience that features rare pop-culture artifacts that blend Hollywood, science, and technology into one amazing, 8,000 square foot exhibit. There are more than 30 interactive exhibits that celebrate and explore the greatest works of innovation and imagination in pop culture history.

According to MLive, they have replicas of famous icons including interactive animatronics R2-D2, E.T., Hal 9000, H.R. Giger’s Alien, the DeLorean, and more. They had me at H.R. Giger’s Alien. I will go for that reason alone. Yeah, I'm kind of a big fan.
