Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?


Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?


This large-scale exhibition will showcase historical artifacts, model airplanes, rare videos and immersive installations exploring the earliest attempts to employ unmanned flying machines to the advanced systems of the 21st century and beyond. Visitors will be able to fly actual drones and watch the dizzying first-person viewpoint of a drone racing; get up close and personal with Volantis, the world’s first “flying dress,” designed by global superstar Lady Gaga, in collaboration with TechHaus, the technology development division of her Haus of Gaga, and Studio XO, on public display for the first time ever; see a prototype of an Amazon cargo vehicle designed for home delivery of online shopping orders; explore the use of drones in police and fire departments; see how drone technology creates new perspectives for photographers, artists, filmmakers and stage productions; explore the implications of pilotless aircraft on industries including infrastructure, agriculture and meteorology; learn about its contributions to conservation and humanitarian efforts; and consider what the future holds – from the possibility of personal flying cars to space exploration.

Free with Museum Admission.
