You are the exhibit at Houston's Health Museum. One of the special exhibits featured is the You: The Exhibit, where you put your own data into their data base, scan your body that allows you to see a holographic effect of your internal organs, a device that ages you forty years so you can see what you will look like in the future and demonstrate to a child how tall they will become when they reach adulthood. Other amazing displays are The Amazing Body Pavillion, which features over 27 feet of an intestine, a Texas-sized look at the brain, a skeleton bicycle, and a walk-in eyeball experience. Planet You is a 3D film mixing live action with cutting-edge technology and the Challenge Gallery dares visitors to compete against themselves, testing reflexes, mental awareness, and brain teasers. The museum has an interactive approach to learning about health and showcases seasonal exhibits that change every four months. Fun for all ages, this museum is a must in this day and time, offering a realistic approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, green environment and a life –size view into what makes us tick.
