Visitors at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California stood in amazement on Saturday as the aquarium premiered their new jellyfish exhibit, “The Jellies Experience.” The ‘Jellies Experience’ exhibition features 16 species of jellyfish from around the world and is rich with high-tech, interactive gizmos of the sort demanded by 21st century visitors.  The new exhibition houses the jellyfish in cylindrical aquariums along with wall-mounted tanks and the show cost US$3.5 million to set up and build. More and more aquariums, museums and zoos nationwide are starting to balance the natural wonders on display with digitally driven marvels.
