San Jose's Tech Museum of Innovation is designed to inspire children's scientific curiosity, but adults who began as chaperones invariably find themselves becoming enthralled participants. Outside the mango-colored building is a tremendous, hypnotic Rube-Goldberg type of perpetual motion machine, famous for perplexing visitors for hours at a time with its spinning whirligigs and bouncing doohickeys. Inside is an array of hands-on exhibits employing scientific principles that yield exciting results for kids and grown-ups alike. Also, don't miss the IMAX theater, showing films on an enormous screen that literally fills your field of vision, an experience that you're not likely to forget soon. Come to the Tech Museum with an open mind, and give yourself a few extra hours just in case you don't want to leave.
