"An interactive museum about the world" Exploris describes itself as "the world's first global experience center." "Exploris is all about how the world works, and the part each of us can play in it. Our mission, in fact, is to encourage all of us to respect differences, appreciate similarities, and make connections with people around the world." An Imax theater, and a shopping center complement the museum, which might be described as a hybrid cross between San Francisco's Exploratorium, the Boston Museum of Science, the New York Museum of Natural History, and a children's museum.
