Doc Dissections

Get in touch with your inner scientist and dissect an organ (a heart, an eye, or a brain) individually, in a pair, or as a group of four. Get guidance from a doctor and one of The Health Museum’s science educators and learn about the organ’s anatomy and how to keep a healthy body.

Pricing varies depending on the size of the dissection group.
