Zoo in You DETAILS
From the Zoo in You organizer:
Trillions of microbes make their homes inside our bodies, and The Health Museum will introduce you to them! Opening Saturday, June 10, 2023, The Health Museum’s newest exhibit, “Zoo in You,” allows guests of all ages to explore this fascinating and complex world inside us that is our microbiome—a dynamic, adaptable, and delicately balanced ecosystem much like any other found in nature.
At “Zoo in You,” guests can learn who our constant microbial companions are, where they live, how diverse they are, and in what ways scientists are discovering just how important they are to our personal health. Visitors are invited to explore this vibrant world of our inner microorganisms through engaging, interactive, and bilingual exhibits and programs.
“Zoo in You” was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
