The Mind exhibit is one of the coolest science exhibits found in any science museum. What makes it so cool? Well, for one thing, in Mind, you are the exhibit! Located at the Exploratorium in San Francisco’s Marina District, Mind is a permanent museum collection with over forty exhibits that create provocative and compelling experiences that illuminate how the mind works. Some of their coolest activities include:
- an activity to analyze the changes in your facial expression in a moment of extreme surprise
- an exhibit that forces participants to communicate with body language rather than facial expressions
- my favorite experiment (which can be played online) that challenges you to explore the limits of your mind’s attention capacity
