Amazing Body Gallery

Permanent Exhibit

Explore the science of health and the human body with interactive kiosks and larger-than-life models of human organs including a giant beating heart! A great way for students to learn about body

Brain Teasers

Permanent Exhibit

It’s time to flex some mental muscle! This guest-favorite features a collection of hands-on puzzles designed to develop problem-solving skills while providing plenty of fun. Featuring a wide array of challenges - from mathematical conundrums to mind-boggling block puzzles - this exhibition challenges you to use creative thinking and problem-solving strategies such as looking for patterns, thinking ahead, setting aside preconceived ideas, and looking at problems from different perspectives.

OUTBREAK: Epidemics in a Connected World

On exhibit through Fall 2021

Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do? What makes them spread so quickly? Where do we look for the next one? Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology - and as the current COVID-19 pandemic has shown us - even our viruses. Explore the connections between human, animal, environmental health and outbreaks; see how epidemic-fighters around the globe predict, track and fight epidemics; learn about past outbreaks that have affected the Greater Houston Area; and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak. This is a great opportunity to provide a context for understanding the current pandemic.

OUTBREAK: Epidemics in a Connected World was created by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes

On exhibit through May 19, 2021

Using the bicycle as a point of reference, explore a variety of science and engineering topics at fourteen different science stations throughout this new exhibition. Topics include Newton’s Laws of Motion, density, power and color perception. This special exhibition also features a diverse collection of historic, peculiar, and all-around amazing bikes that tell the story of the bicycle from its inception to present day. Like the bicycle itself, the exhibition has been designed to appeal to people of all ages and with diverse interests, from STEM to design to history to art.

GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes is organized by Carnegie Science Center (Pittsburgh, PA)

Your Body, Your Air

On exhibit through April 2021

What are the most common air pollutants in Houston, and where do they come from? What is the relationship between these pollutants and the health of individuals and neighborhoods? Created in collaboration with the Environmental Defense Fund, this exhibit explores the connection between air quality and health. Featuring animations, dioramas, and inspiring student videos, Your Body, Your Air encourages people of all ages to envision a healthier Houston.

The Hands That Feed Houston

On exhibit through February 2021

The Hands That Feed Houston is a photo documentary created by Houston photographer, Amy Scott. This project celebrates the farmers and ranchers that feed Houston, a city of over 2.3 million, and the most racially and ethnically diverse city in the U.S. For the project, nine farmers and ranchers were selected to have their daily lives highlighted. Three days were spent with each individual, following their days and capturing the realities of food production on small and large scales. These photos tell their stories.
