TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Air and Space Museum is opening its new mars exhibition.

The exhibit features hands-on experiments that show how humans could survive in the martian environment.

Visitors will learn how to grow their own food and live on the red planet by designing water purification methods and vegetative growth.

"It's really just a great place for young folks to come and experience stem activity and kind of have hands on activity based learning. So, they will be able to walk out of this building with things they've created," said Alex London, a currator and collections manager.

The Martian Experience will be at the museum until the end of July.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
