BRANSON, Mo. — When visitors enter WonderWorks in Branson, they are greeted with the fictional story of how the museum originated.
The tale starts with a science professor named Mr. Wonder.
According to the museum, Mr. Wonder was concocting an experiment in his science lab in the Bermuda Triangle when a tornado that he was attempting to harness inside of his lab got out of control.
The tornado then picked up his science lab, blew it hundreds of miles away and dumped it upside down on a fishing lodge in Branson.
After learning the "origin" story of the upside-down museum, visitors enter an inversion tunnel that supposedly turns everything upright so they can enjoy the activities.
The museum has more than 100 different hands-on exhibits and displays. WonderWorks invites anyone and everyone of all ages to explore and use their imagination for the day.
The museum has partnered with the U.S. Army to provide a unique look at some of the nation's history and with NASA to offer detailed information on space.
