Ever wonder what is going on in your head? Now, you can find out! Opening on June 15, 2024, The Health Museum will debut the U.S. premiere of MindWorks, a hands-on, bodies-on psychology exhibition on loan from the Ontario Science Centre.
MindWorks brings ideas like decision-making, memory, and emotions to life through playful, interactive exhibits based on cognitive psychology. MindWorks will encourage visitors to step into their own mind and explore how they think, feel, and react in a playful and exciting new way.
Researched, designed, and fabricated by the Ontario Science Centre, MindWorks lets visitors explore and learn through a fully immersive experience – from writing a song with building blocks to understanding personality traits. Visitors can try their negotiation skills to play the world’s largest Pac-Man game and engage in critical thinking as they squeeze through unusual shapes and explore consciousness with help from a humanoid robot.
In this age of technology and instant communications, MindWorks is designed to keep visitors in the moment. Through carefully crafted reflection questions, the exhibition asks visitors to step back and look at thought processes they take for granted. Whether they’re comparing risks and rewards, pondering their dreams, or creating a digital painting, visitors will discover the remarkable power of their minds.
The exhibition will be in Houston through September 29, 2024 and admission is included in the general admission ticket for The Health Museum. It is designed to be a conversation starter for visitors of all ages on topics such as understanding perception, making choices, and exploring emotions. To continue the discussion, The Health Museum will offer activities, demonstrations and special speakers that expand on different themes featured in the MindWorks exhibition.
