Measurement Rules
On view through January 2, 2022
Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention
Gainesville, Florida

How many chickens do you weigh? How tall are you in apples or inches or pennies? Can you use your foot as a ruler? The answers to these and other questions can be explored at Measurement Rules. This interactive exhibit is designed to help visitors build confidence in the language of measurement by exploring nonstandard measuring tools such as balancing scales, odometers, calipers, 3-D imaging and counting “Mississippis.”

This exhibit, created by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, is locally funded in part by Visit Gainesville, Alachua County.
