Adults, children and family members alike are invited to test their skills throughout several uniquely themed rooms starting with the Entry, where you will be greeted by the wacky Mr. E, current curator of the Mindbender Society. You can also explore other immersive rooms like the Parlor; the Library; the Kitchen, with its moving dinner trays; the Map Room and more! Decipher the right number of hidden clues, puzzles and secrete passwords and certify your exclusive membership into the Mindbender Society!

This exhibition is included with Museum admission! It was produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland, Oregon.

Math, science, and technology educational content are woven into the puzzles, videos, and group challenges found inside Mindbender Mansion. At the heart of the exhibit is the essential scientific task of problem solving and critical thinking. The puzzles are an excellent tool for explaining mathematical and physical science concepts.
