Episode 94: Discover How Your Mind Works at The Health Museum

Do you know the difference between your brain and your mind? The MindWorks exhibit, built by the Ontario Science Centre, is a hands-on, thought-provoking exhibit that explores this difference. This interactive exhibit helps us learn what makes us who we are, why we think, feel, and act, and where our inner voice comes from.

In this episode, our host Blanca Quezada sits down with Becky Seabrook, Director of Guest Engagement at The Health Museum. Becky discusses what makes this exhibition interesting, how it encourages self-reflection, and shows our minds’ remarkable power. She also explains how the exhibit will make us question what our mind is, how it works, and how it helps us think and feel.

Becky also talks about how the exhibition starts thought-provoking conversations about making choices, understanding perception, and the nature of consciousness. Is the mind separate from our brain, or does the brain control the mind?

The exhibit is for visitors of all ages, with hands-on activities for kids, too.

MindWorks will be open through September 29, 2024, and admission is included with the general admission ticket for The Health Museum. For more details, visit https://www.thehealthmuseum.org or call (713) 521-1515.
