Opened in 1969 following a successful Victory Over Polio campaign, The Health Museum Houston has thrived as one of the city’s most hands-on museums, now playing host to more than 180,000 visitors annually. Highlights include You: The Exhibit, which features a body scanner that allows you to see your insides in real time, the Amazing Body Pavilion, which is quite literally a walking tour of a gigantic model of a human body (see above), and the McGovern 4-D Theater, a cinema watching experience that makes use of its 4-D billing with in-theater wind, rain, and scents.
