Rain Room exhibit at Museum of Modern Art

Imagine a room full of rain that stops wherever you stand. Now it's areality and people are lining up for hours to experience it.

People are waiting in line for five, six hours to get achance to stroll through the Rain Room and once they do, they say it waswell worth it.

It's dreamy, intense, and like nothingyou've ever experienced; that's how people are describing what it's liketo stroll through the Rain Room.

It's a mind blowing exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art.

You are surrounded by pouring water, yet you stay dry.

It is by far, one of MoMA's most unusual and talked about exhibits.

You're encouraged to soak up this large scale installation, whichusing digital technology creates a field of falling water that pausesevery time a human body is detected.

Sensors do the trick.

Created by Random International, this is the team's largest and mostambitious project and really pushes people to explore the rolesscience, technology and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing ourenvironment.

Part of the fun is taking pictures.

When you're in there you have to walk slowly, if you don't you'll get soaking wet.

You truly get a sense of what it's like to essentially, control the rain,

This is the only place in the country where you'll be able to enjoy the Rain Room, a definite must do.

The museum only lets about 10 people into the Rain Room at a time, ifit gets to crowded, the water slows down, they also want you to haveplenty of room to play.

The exhibit will be open through July 28th.
