The Health Museum

This museum showcases huge sculptures of human organs at the Jim Hickox Amazing Body Pavilion. Exciting exhibits include a seven metre long backbone and a three metre tall brain. Another interesting feature is the 'walk-in eyeball' where visitors can learn how the eye functions as an organ. These are just some of the many exhibits that are present, each of which demonstrates how that particular organ functions, and how the body works as a whole. Demonstrations on how to stay fit and healthy are also included in this fascinating museum.
