Sat May 14, 2022 - Mon Sep 5, 2022- see all dates
Various times
Adults $25 | Students & Seniors $20 | Children (4-15) $17

Explore the beauty and complexities of one of science’s greatest mysteries — the human brain — while following the life of a neuron from pre-birth to death at Artechouse's latest immersive exhibition.

Visitors walk into artistic renditions of a brain at the cellular level — encountering a larger-than-life neuron, the “thinking cells” of the brain. Depicting the life stages of a human neuron from neural migration to aging, guests are surrounded by a highly immersive sound design that tells a universal life story, beginning with a baby crying and including sounds of laughter, children playing in a playground, people singing happy birthday, an ambulance siren, and finally a flatline.

Purchase tickets online in advance. Check for current Covid restrictions.
