ASHLAND, Ore--- The new sound exhibit was unveiled at Science Works on Saturday. 

The new display takes up most of the main floor, and brings a new understanding to how sound works. 

According to Executive Director Dan Ruby, who can use it is unlimited. 

"We are really excited, it's kind of a new direction for us. We really want to be science engagement for all ages and all audiences. So, this exhibit is in English, and Spanish, and Braille, and it has stuff for all ages." said Ruby. 

Kids and parents alike spent the day using all the new equipment, while getting still use a good amount of the old stuff as well. Many parents were seen showing just as much interest in the sound equipment as the kids. 

All sorts of sounds are explored in the new exhibit. From the ocean, to the forest, the city, and music. It even teaches kids how their voices work. 

Not only do the kids get the opportunity to learn how noise is created, but they get to create the noise as well. There are many sound making contraptions, along with an instrument room. 

According to Ruby, the sound display replaced a lot of old exhibits on the main floor. Those exhibits have either been moved to other spots in the museum, or are being repaired and will return. 

To go along with the display, there will be musical performances each month. 

On the first Saturday of the month, there will be performance that fits with one part of the exhibit.
