LIFE LAB Fear: Face It!

Saturday, Sep. 24, 2016 – Monday, Jan. 16, 2017


Join The Health Museum to investigate the science behind fear. The NEW Life Lab exhibit features interactives that explore different phobias and how your body responds to these fears. You can explore everything from the exhilarating feeling you get when riding a rollercoaster to the paralyzing feeling that arises from phobias.

Explore the body’s physiological responses to fear as well as the psycho-social triggers that ignite fear in individuals and communities. Whether you are a thrill-seeker or faint-at-heart, you are invited to come face-to-face with your own fears.
