It’s What’s Inside that Counts
Crawling on your skin, swimming in your gut, and traveling through your intestines are over 100 trillion teeny, tiny microbes. In fact, there are more microbes in and on your body than stars in the Milky Way.
Meet your microbiome, the community of microbes that keep your immune system, digestive system and brain working properly. Using larger-than-life models, videos, interactive experiences, unique games, and immersive displays, discover what and where these microbes are, how they help us, how we sometimes disrupt them, and how we can work with them to make our lives better than ever.
Cost: Free with Museum admission and CityPASS. Members free.
The Secret World Inside You is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (amnh.org).
