I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Holographic Studios Tour

We were given a complimentary Holographic Studios Tour for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own. 

What: Holographic Studios Tour

Where: 240 E. 26th St.
             New York, NY

Who: All ages

Me - The Holographic Studio Tour was fun. It was nice meeting Dr. Laser, and he was really nice. I learned a lot on the tour. Holograms are really fascinating. It was really cool to get to know more about them. I even got one to take home. It was from an advertising campaign, and there are penguins on it. 

Dr. Laser has gotten the chance to work with many well-known people. He has a poster with all their autographs. It was really interesting to get to find out about some of them even though I hadn't heard of most of them. One of the people he worked with was Cher.

I had never been on a tour like the holographic studio tour. It was quite unique. We got to see a laser and learn about how it works. It was truly a one-of-a-kind experience which I would highly recommend.

Mom - The science of holography has to do with recording and reconstructing wavelengths. However, most of us think of it as cool and lifelike moving pictures or something like that. If you want to learn more about what holograms really are and how they are made, you are definitely going to want to take one of Dr. Laser's tours at Holographic Studios. 

Holographic Studios is the oldest gallery of holography. Dr. Laser has been creating, selling, and teaching holography since the 1960s. During that time, he has worked with many well-known corporations and institutions as well as many famous celebrities. To top it all off, in his spare time he is an actor who has appeared in numerous films and TV shows.

On a tour of Holographic Studios, you will learn about the science of holography. You will get to see numerous examples of Dr. Laser's work. You will get to see the laser and watch how holograms are actually made. You may even get to take home a hologram yourself. 

Tours are available by appointment. They provide a great experience for all different groups of all different ages including school groups. A holographic studios tour is unique and fun for everyone.

And that's our view. For more information or to book a tour, visit www.holographer.com

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
