Houston, TX — When you enter Seismic, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a sci-fi wonderland. The 40,000 square foot attraction is Houston’s newest permanent art museum – and it’s unlike any other in the world.
Seismic includes 40 different immersive galleries, or galaxies, as the museum’s creators like to call them. Each galaxy offers a unique experience, from a landscape of colorful glowing globes that respond to touch to a 70-foot spaceship and a net-like climbing attraction that will take you back to your childhood. Unlike other art museums, you are encouraged to touch and interact with the exhibits at Seismique.
“It’s for all your senses,” said John Anselmo, chief operating officer at Seismique. “Engage however you want, as much or as little as you want. It’s much more free. There are so many ways you can enjoy it. It brings out a childlike wonder in just about everyone.”
Seismique’s one-of-a-kind exhibits are brought to life with state-of-the-art technology including nine million LED lights, 111 projectors, motion capture technology, holograms, light mapping, augmented reality and more. Forty different artists from around the world have spent weeks creating this wonderful world, which can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.
“It’s a huge experience,” said Steve Kopelman, founder of Seismique. “Just watch people come in and their mouths are open wide, and then they’re overloaded with color from there.”
