The John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science, also known as The Health Museum, is a unique health and science education facility with a fantastic main attraction: the Jim Hickox Amazing Body Pavilion, a larger-than-life walking tour through the human body.

  • Sixty-one interactive video and audio kiosks invite guests to pose interesting questions about human anatomy and health information.
  • A 22-foot-long backbone with ribs descending from the ceiling to the floor, creating the feeling of being inside a giant rib cage.

The hands on experience includes:

  • 27½-foot intestine
  • Texas-sized, 10-foot-tall walk-through brain with memory games
  • Skeleton riding a bicycle
  • Hearing evaluation tests
  • Skin morphing demonstrating the effects of sunlight on the skin
  • Look down the throat at vocal chords in action
  • Clogged artery stations
  • Colossal walk-in eyeball that demonstrates how your eye receives and perceives images
