Beyond Rubik’s Cube: The DoSeum is the Only Stop in Texas!

Opening at The DoSeum on Saturday, March 12th at noon as The DoSeum’s first ever special exhibit, Beyond Rubik’s Cube is the new exhibit that celebrates the world’s most enduring puzzle in an entertaining, interactive setting. Solve, play, and have fun, all in the ultimate hands-on exhibit.

Beyond Rubik’s Cube celebrates the world’s bestselling puzzle toy. The multimillion-dollar exhibition invites audiences to examine why a small puzzle became, and remains, a phenomenon that resonates with a global audience and connects to fields across the spectrum of human creativity. The three exhibition zones, Play, Invent, and Inspire, offer access points for guests of all ages, backgrounds, and interests as they showcase the art, invention, and scientific exploration that have sprung from Ernő Rubik’s timeless invention.
