Being Human

Spark is re-opening on July 11! 

Please note, all galleries and exhibits will be temporarily CLOSED at this time. Check out new and freshly squeezed experiences here. 

Are you courageous enough to lie on a Bed of Nails?

What gets your heart racing? What do you look like when you're startled? Take a drink from a toilet. Make a memory. Explore your body at a microscopic level. Be human.

Though all human beings have nearly identical DNA, each of us is unique. Being Human connects your one-of-a-kind personal experiences to fascinating science about who we are.

Discover the most fascinating people on Earth - you, your friends and your family. In the fall of 2016, ten new exhibits were added to the Being Human gallery. Check them out on your next visit:
