Exhibit: Our Senses at The American Museum of Natural History
Every day, we perceive the world around us through our senses—including sight, smell, hearing, touch, balance, and taste. But as it turns out, for humans “reality” isn’t ever exactly what it seems.
In this highly experiential exhibition, explore 11 funhouse-like spaces that dare you to trust your senses—then show you how what we perceive is not simply a window into the world around us but a product of our brains. Plus, discover why we have senses and what’s unique about human perception during an interactive session hosted by a live presenter.
