Gear up with a lab coat, gloves and goggles and travel through experiment stations in both English and Spanish. This hands-on exhibit is $3 for current members, and an additional $5 per person for non-members with the purchase of general admission to The Health Museum.  Travel through seven lab stations that get you up close and personal with cellular biology.  Your Cell Lab admission ticket permits access to up to 3 of the 7 lab stations per visit. Due to the complexity of the experiments, all guests, ages 13 and under, must be accompanied by an adult. It is required that all guests  must be ages 7 and above in order to participate in The DeBakey Cell Lab.

The DeBakey Cell Lab is a distinct, new kind of museum experience. Honorably named after the respected and accomplished medical pioneer, Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, this bilingual exhibit is designed to introduce biology-based science to the public and inspire future scientists and science-lab leaders in the medical field.
