Explore & Learn

Should parents know the genome of their future or newborn child? What keeps you awake? How does your body perform all of its amazing tasks? Step inside the Hall of Human Life at the Museum of Science, Boston to explore such far-reaching questions. Learn more about yourself and other organisms, including your friends and family.

The 10,000-square-foot permanent exhibition, located on the second floor of the Green Wing, features dozens of activities that explore the way the human body works and how we can affect or be affected by the changing world around us.

Discover & Share

Spanning more than 70 interactive components, the exhibition will enables you to engage with your biology in new ways and inspire you to think critically, be curious, and explore the science of human health, biology, and behavior. Your unique wristband will allow you to engage with our digital media to become part of the story, as you contribute your own data and perspectives in an unending process of learning and discovery.
