Einstein, the Exhibition will run in Medellin until October 2 at Parque Explora.
More than 100 letters, experiments, manuscripts, and other items offer visitors a glimpse into the life of the legendary theoretical physicist, announced the cultural news site Cromos.
Each section of the exhibition focuses on a different facet of the genius’ life: growing up in Germany with a Jewish family, his politics and positions on Hitler, peace and war, his scientific and mathematical theories, and his legacy in pop culture.
Of particular fascination are Einstein’s personal letters about his role in the invention of the atomic bomb and his reaction to its deployment against Japan.
