The Children’s Science Explorium presents its own hands-on science exhibits all year long. These exhibits are usually designed in-house and offer a fascinating variety of interactive components for our guests to explore and investigate at their own pace. The Children’s Science Explorium also periodically hosts traveling exhibits from national and international science museums. All exhibits are intended to spark a child or adult’s natural curiosity about how and why things work as they do. Each invites visitors to explore, build and examine their understanding of the fantastic world we live in!

Trillions of microbes make their homes inside our bodies, and we wouldn’t be able to survive without each other! Zoo in You, invites guests of all ages to explore this fascinating and complex world inside us that is our microbiome — a dynamic, adaptable, and delicately balanced ecosystem much like any other found in nature.
Explore the world of our inner microorganisms through engaging, interactive, and bilingual exhibits and programs and discover who our constant microbial companions are, where they live, how diverse they are, and in what ways scientists are discovering just how important they are to our personal health.
Zoo in You was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This exhibit was made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
