Seltzer Making Process

When the factory is open, visitors to the Brooklyn Seltzer Museum can observe every step in the seltzer production process. Afterwards they are challenged to recreate the journey of seltzer as it moves from one machine to another using a wooden puzzle.

That very puzzle has been digitized and turned into an online interactive. See how many turns it takes you to rebuild the journey of seltzer. Get ready to bubble up some fun!

User Instruction: Drag the eight pieces over the gray drop zones. When your cursor is inside, the zone turns pink, indicating you drop the piece into place. After placing all of the pieces, click “Check” at the bottom left to see how many you got right. Can you solve the puzzle and set the seltzer to flow?

If you are unsure how to begin, just grab a piece and watch what happens.
