The newest exhibit at the Grand Rapids Public is also one of the most interactive the museum has ever had, and perfect for keeping minds sharp in between school sessions.

The exhibit, "Mindbender Mansion," features over four dozen puzzles and games for visitors to solve. These puzzles use all kinds of skills such as math, spelling, and communication.

"This is a summer exhibit for the museum so kids are out of school but we're still having fun an d engaging them and keeping them going until they head back to school in the fall," says Christie Bender, Marketing Director at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.

Some of the puzzles give clues, and submitting these clues to the vault will unveil a password. Passwords are used to gain access to the Mindbender Society and on the Wall of Fame.

Mindbender Mansion will be open until September 3, 2017.
