The Tech Museum of Innovation, or simply The Tech, is a museum in downtown San Jose. It has many exhibits dealing with energy efficiency, customization, exploration, and genetics. The ground floor has the main entrance, a gift shop and cafe, the Imax theater, and a recreational area that is reserved for special events. Four major theme galleries fill the upper level and lower level: Communication, Exploration, Innovation and Life Tech. On the lower level there is also a public piece of artwork titled Origin, which is inside a 45-foot-tall (14 m) cylinder. The current facility opened in 1998.
