Seeking to instill in young people an appreciation of the human body and a high regard for health, this museum (affiliated with Texas Medical Center) takes education to a new level. The facility's biggest attraction is its "Amazing Body Pavilion," whose enormous replicas of the human form let kids explore (and walk through) the brain, the heart, the rib cage, and more. Interactive displays provide instruction about memory, vision, circulation, and hearing. Videos, games, and an outdoor sensory garden also further the cause.
