The museum contains exhibits and interactive displays designed to show how technology affects everyday life. An audio kinetic sculpture made with billiard balls that run through a giant maze serves as the front entrance attraction.
The 132,000 square feet of The Tech are shared by four major theme galleries packed full of one-of-a-kind exhibits, the Hackworth IMAX Dome Theater, an educational center for workshops and labs, an upscale cafe, and a retail store featuring books, gifts, and only-in-Silicon Valley items. An estimated 650,000 visitors are expected to trek to The Tech each year, making it one of California's most popular destinations.
The Museum is open daily July and August. During the rest of the year the Museum is closed non-holiday Mondays, as well as New Years Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
