SAN JOSE, Calif.--If you've ever wanted a chance to bust a myth like a real MythBuster, your time has come.

Starting tomorrow, MythBusters fans can try their hand at a number of myths and see some of the artifacts behind a number of the hit Discovery Channel show's greatest hits at MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition at the Tech Museum here.

From testing whether you're more likely to get wet by running or walking in the rain to whether it's really possible to pull a tablecloth off a table without destroying everything on it to a look at a jet pack used to try to take host Jamie Hyneman aloft, the exhibit has a little something for everyone. You can see if you could kill someone with a playing card, or whether you can dodge a bullet. And you can find out what the dirtiest item in the average home is.

Yesterday, MythBusters Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Bellici were on hand to unveil the new exhibit, which will be in San Jose through January 6 before heading off to Portland, Ore.

And as always, while the MythBusters want their fans to enjoy what they do, they also want to be sure that people " don't try this at home ."
