Mag Me Banner

on view January 12 - April 5

What do you look like on the inside? Can your senses fool your brain? Why does your body make so many noises? Learn the answer to these questions and many more in Magnificent Me, a fun and engaging hands-on science exhibit, helping families, children, and school groups explore systems in the human body. Using a variety of medical technologies in eighteen interactive exhibits, visitors learn about the body's muscles and bones, heart and lungs, digestive system, and brain and nerves.
