There are 11 organ systems in the human body and this museum barely even brushes over any of them... and half of the stuff in there doesn't even work. There really is so much lost potential here. I know museums aren't a huge business, but...More

The Health Museum is in a total state of disrepair. Most of the exhibits are broken and non-functional; several other exhibits are just run down and dirty. It really isn’t worth a stop. Go to the brightly lit and well run nearby Children’s Museum instead.

As one who has worked in the Biomedical Sciences, I found the museum to be mediocre - especially since a number of the exhibits did not function. There were parts missing and directions were not easy to read. A nice concept, but lacking in management.

It is a very small Museum, and two of their exhibitions were closed. Some demonstrations were not working inside of the open exposition.

Great interactive museum with focus on health and science. Create mechanical devices, learn about prosthetics, see how technology has helped those that have physical challenges and limitations. Could be bigger.

This museum is a basic, interactive museum intended for younger people. I am also a medical geek but found it fun and enjoyable. But, if you do not like kids, or basic displays, this may not be the place for you.
