This unique gallery immerses visitors of all ages in The World of Tomorrow – reminiscent of the 1939 World’s Fair. Join your fellow museum visitors in a learning environment that allows investigation into the who, what, where, when, and how of YOU.
Using multi-media and special effects technology, The Health Museum's staff created an experience that takes museum visitors on a journey to explore their physical selves, mental selves and their future selves. The nature of the exhibition encourages group interaction and participation in the exhibition, and visitors are able to leave something of themselves behind to change the experience over time.
