This unique museum offers patrons the opportunity to test their knowledge of history and logic skills with their mind-boggling interactive exhibits. The long hall is divided into sections, each recreating a major event in world history. Visitors are challenged to find the historical errors in each display, some involving special knowledge (ancient Roman saddles didn't have stirrups) and some just involving common sense (ancient Roman soldiers didn't have potato chips). Every scene has at least 10 errors and the displays change monthly. If planning a trip with a group, the museums event planners can customize it to your needs and offer prizes to the best anachronism-spotters. Past themed exhibits include Hollywood films and Japanese anime.
