Immerse yourself in the world of "POPnology," Comic-Con Museum’s latest interactive exhibit that demonstrates the connection between pop culture and real-world technology! Engage with your favorite science fiction technology such as driverless cars, robots, drones, and more to learn how fantasy becomes reality and explore which science fiction of today will become reality tomorrow.

"POPnology" not only chronicles humans’ progression from science fiction to science fact but also illuminates emerging technologies that are just now showing up on the cultural radar.

Highlights of the exhibit include:

  • How We Play – The future of toys and games. Is virtual the new reality? Experience Oculus Rift and virtual projection games for a 3D sensory experience made exclusively for "POPnology."
  • How We Connect – The revolution in communication technology, with concept drawings from the visual futurists who created the looks for "Blade Runner," and an authentic replica of the communication device used by E.T. to “phone home.” 
  • How We Live and Work – Inventions and ideas that shape daily life, including interacting with robots.
  • How We Move – The future of transportation on Earth and beyond, featuring a full-sized replica of the "Back to the Future" DMC DeLorean and the world’s first 3D-printed car.

Museum Hours: Tuesday - Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Confirm before you go
