We had the opportunity to attend the new interactive exhibit, Rain, at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.

The exhibit is a large, dark room with a rainstorm in it! You can hear the rain falling and see it coming down from the ceiling, but if you walk into the rain slowly, it doesn't hit you or get you wet. There are sensors that tell the rain to stop falling and it stills rains all around you.

We got a little wet if we went through quickly because the sensors didn't have time to react. We were so excited to see a rainbow with the falling rain. It was awesome! We were really astonished at how cool this exhibit was.

The exhibit lets visitors explore how science and technology might be able to control our environment.

The exhibit is there through July 28 and we think you should take a walk in the rain and check it out. Look online: moma.org/rainroom. MoMA is located at 11 W. 53rd St., Manhattan, 212-708-9400.

Before we went, we were speculating if we would get wet or not. We loved getting wet when we tried to.

It was awesome!
