Being Human

Being Human

Humans can’t breathe and swallow at the same time. You just tried, didn’t you?

Being Human is now open!

Being Human

Though all human beings have nearly identical DNA, each one of us is unique. Explore the human experience in deep and wonderful ways – from how we fall in love, to what we see, how we feel, and how memories work.

Conquer your fears and demonstrate weight distribution on the Bed of Nails.

Can you overcome irrationality to take a drink from a toilet?
