Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Have kids in tow? The free Sony Wonder Technology Lab in the Sony Building lets them program robots, remix songs, perform virtual heart surgery, learn about new technologies inspired by nature, and see their dance moves performed by favorite Sony-animated characters in real time through motion capture. A fascinating evolutionary timeline explores how technology keeps getting faster, sharper, smaller, and more portable. The lab also shows classic and contemporary films for both young and adult audiences in its HD theater on Thursday and Saturday. Admission is free, but reservations are strongly recommended; they can be made a minimum of seven days and up to three months from the time of visit. A limited number of same-day tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
