The Bloomfield Science Museum has an amazing summer exhibit.
GUT FEELING is the incredible story of the digestive system!
It’s an experiential journey within your digestive system, tracing a path that begins at the mouth and winds its way through the intestines. Just as food undergoes a transformative process within the digestive system, you can enter the exhibition through the mouth and emerge… well, come and see for yourselves!
The new exhibition spans over 600 square meters and features dozens of interactive exhibits, videos, graphic panels, and more.
The “Gut Feeling” exhibition has made its way to Jerusalem all the way from the renowned Science Museum in Paris, where it captivated tens of thousands of visitors. The exhibition takes inspiration from the international best-selling book “Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ,” written by Giulia Enders and illustrated by Jill Enders. The book has been translated into 40 languages.
