There may never be a virus as deadly or as misunderstood as AIDS. Responsible for 36 million deaths since its discovery in 1981, it remains shrouded in myths, misconceptions, and mistruths... until now. Scientists deep in the African Congo have discovered forgotten clues that are rewriting the story of the global pandemic and revealing shocking facts about its origins. Now the race is on to see if these new findings are the key to developing a vaccine that could finally win the epic battle against HIV.
My 8-year old son a positive experience, during a recent Health Museum visit. It was fun and he walked away with a curiosity about the human body and interest to learn more information.
My son learned about DNA, bodily functions and fingerprints. These are all items than he has not fully learned in school.
Well organized, Safe environment, nice staff. The kids learned a lot of new information about the human body and loved visiting the exhibits.
