Salt serves as the unifying theme throughout the exhibits in the Hall of Technology. This choice was inspired by the close proximity of salt domes to the museum, with one located less than a mile to the east in the Avalon neighborhood. By incorporating this local “Texas tie,” the exhibit reinforces the belief that wonder sparks learning and exploration throughout a lifetime. Visitors will gain a deeper appreciation for the significance of salt, its geological origins, and its various applications in our daily lives.
