Closeup look at the brain in Life Sciences

Life Sciences

The human body is a complicated, living machine, and this exhibit takes a journey through its key elements. Walk through an enormous, beating heart to see its chambers, tackle puzzles near a larger-than-life brain, and use your sense of touch to figure out what is hidden in three boxes.

Learn what people used as medicine 100 years ago by visiting the Rothschild Apothecary Shop. Believe it or not, some of the medications are still used today!

The exhibit also examines things at the molecular level, including cells, DNA, and microbes. End your tour with a rousing game of virtual basketball and try to make the Top 10 list for number of baskets made.
