Welcome to the world of Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body, a science-in-disguise exhibition where kids get the answers to many of the slimy, oozy, crusty, stinky questions they absolutely love to ask about the human body.

Designed to be the first of its kind, the exhibition gives kids, along with intrigued adults, an opportunity to:

Climb a human skin wall with warts, hairs, wounds and other objects that act as hand and foot holds. Here visitors discover more about features such as pimples, blisters, pores, bruises and scabs as they relate to the epidermis.
Stop by the Toot Toot exhibit to create different sounds that replicate the physics of gas.
Play surgery and attempt to remove organ parts from a body without touching the sides of the patient.
And so much more.
