Meanwhile, football’s back at the MOD — “Football: The Exhibit,” that is, opening Thursday, June 1, and running through August.

The exhibit, built by the MOD, explores the science, technology and history of the game. The “Grip Tester” lets you see how your strength measures up to a lineman’s, while the “Passing Game Zone” shows how a ball rotates and maintains its stability when passed. There’s even a tailgate party in the “Football and Society Zone.”

MOD hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $7 for adults, and $6 for ages 1-12 and seniors 65 and older.
