Me, The Medical Marvel

September 1, 2010 - December 31, 2010

What is the vascular system and how does it work? How does a fetus develop and what are the stages of the birth process? What were some of the tools used to diagnose and treat illness before the advent of modern medicine? These topics, and more, will be explored in a 1,500-square foot temporary exhibition about the human body and healthy lifestyles. A series of 10 exhibits will allow you to learn about blood, birth, antique medical devices, teeth, hearing and vision, tobacco and smoking, AIDS, nutrition and diabetes, and safety. The exhibition is on loan from the Hall of Health, Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland, California.





















Hubble Space Telescope: New Views of the Universe

January 15, 2010 - August 28, 2010

This unique traveling exhibition contains images and video taken from the Hubble Space Telescope of planets, galaxies, black holes, and many other fascinating cosmic entities. Filled with numerous interactive displays, visitors will be able to “hit” Jupiter with a comet, attempt to put star clusters in order of age, estimate the number of galaxies in the universe, match before - and after images of colliding galaxies, use stars to calculate specific galaxy distances from Earth, and use an infrared camera to learn about the different wavelengths of light. The exhibition is an outstanding venue for presenting the spectacular images of the universe and the associated discoveries made with the Hubble Space Telescope.
