Westworld Tour

Journey to the Center of the Maze

Free with Museum Admission


Is our identity anything more than our memories of the past?

This tour will examine the philosophical questions addressed in the hit HBO series Westworld and draw connections to the art in our galleries. Conceptualized in collaboration with Westworld scientific advisor and Rubin Museum fellow David Eagleman, this hour-long journey through the galleries will leave you questioning how much you really understand about your own mind and give you glimpses into new ways of knowing.

This free tour follows the 1:30 PM Brainwave talk “Is Westworld our Future?” featuring Eagleman in conversation with machine learning specialist Pedro Domingos (The Master Algorithm).

Brainwave is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
