This season alone, the show is seeking to answer such questions as: Could a hero really shoot a live grenade in midair and thus render it useless, like in the movies? Or, could a vacuum cleaner explode while sucking up black powder? Those questions won't necessarily be part of the exhibit, but you'll get to answer some other questions on your own.

Savage and Hyneman were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests experience a true MythBusting encounter.
"It's exciting to see fans take on some of our favorite experiments from the show while drawing their own conclusions and data," Savage says in press release. "Although they are tackling the same myths and questions, each guest can have a unique experience within the exhibit."
Experiments in the exhibit cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed and combustion. Highlights:
--Workshop: Museum visitors can turn into investigators and use real science to test myths. So you can find out if toast always does land butter-side down (without having to mop your kitchen) or whether you'll get more wet if you walk instead of run in the rain.
--Live MythBusters Demonstration Stage: Here, you can view and participate in live science demonstrations that dissect myths with the help of a team of energetic MythBusting facilitators.
