I'm not exactly sure what this will entail, but the Science Museum of Minnesota's internal newsletter states:

DA VINCI SURGICAL ROBOT HERE SEPTEMBER 30
Regions Hospital invites you to operate the da Vinci surgical system. On Wednesday, September 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the robot will be on display in the museum's Human Body Gallery. Practice your surgical moves and learn how futuristic robotic-aided surgery is helping people.

So if you wanna do some play future surgery, come on down.
