The Exploratorium installed a new interactive musical exhibit in Joaquin Plaza in downtown San Leandro, which opened on Wednesday.

The exhibit features eight points of interaction. Users sit in a rocking chair that then triggers the chimes for a musical experience.

The installation also creates an archway where people can walk and enjoy the music.

The project is part of the city's ongoing efforts to revitalize the downtown area.

"One of the things that we want to do it bring people together. The key part of this is it's for every age group," San Leandro Mayor Pauline Cutter said.

The city worked with the Exploratorium for two years to develop the project.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday, hosted by representatives from both the city of San Leandro and the Exploratorium.
