Other exhibits

Living Icons is a photo exhibit that features hundreds of Houston-area COVID-19 victims. Created by artist Joni Zavitsanos, the art installation memorializes those who have died as a result of the pandemic and gives us a glimpse of the human impact of this health crisis.


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.


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.
Masks will continue to be required in the DeBakey Cell Lab.
