Summary

Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture explores our complex food system from farm to fork. With sections devoted to growing, transporting, eating, cooking, and celebrating food, Our Global Kitchen illuminates the myriad ways that food is produced, moved, and enjoyed throughout the world.

Summary

Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology, and even our viruses. Join us in learning how people fight epidemics - even before they start! You’ll explore the connections between human, animal, and environmental health, dive into case studies and personal experiences from epidemic-fighters from around the globe, discover how outbreaks have affected the Greater Houston Area, and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak.

Summary

You don’t need to be a scientist to enter, but you’ll feel like one when you leave! Gear up with a lab coat, gloves, and goggles and travel through experiment stations designed to bilingually introduce biology-based science to the public and inspire future scientists and leaders in the medical field. 

Summary

Take a larger-than-life walking tour through the human body and learn more about how your major organs work in this permanent exhibit. Explore the brain, nervous system, ears, eyes, heart, spine and skeleton, intestines, and more in an audio and visual experience like no other.
