Location: Level 2
Expedition Health is not simply another exhibit about the human body. Expedition Health is about YOUR human body-how it is constantly changing and adapting in ways you can see, measure, and optimize through the choices you make.
In the exhibition gallery, visitors will experience highly-interactive, highly-personalized activities, immerse themselves in a theater experience that will engage all of their senses, look at microscopic cells from their own bodies in a laboratory, participate in live demonstrations and programs, and meet new "buddies" who will help them learn about their health.
This new addition to Expedition Health was custom-made for the Museum by the creator of BODY WORLDS, and features two whole-body plastinates -- one reaching down to help the other climb a rock face. The Museum is the first in the world to permanently feature an exhibit of this kind. Click here to learn more.
