"Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body" takes a look at bodily functions most people would rather not talk about even though we all have to deal with them. Grossology explores the human body and how it works with a variety of interactive elements, animatronics, and games. Here are a few things to look forward to.

  • Learn how boogers are formed by launching dirt balls into a really big nose.
  • Play the "Gas Attack" pinball game and learn about foods that make you toot.
  • The "Burp Machine" releases a giant belch while teaching what causes acid indigestion.
  • Why do we throw up? Visit the "Vomit Center" to find the answers.
  • Discover how food becomes waste - a yucky ride on the GI slide.
  • The skin climbing wall features holds that are pimples, warts, and scabs.

May Museum are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. The museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
