Germs! Germs! Germs!
- The Germs! Germs! Germs! Exhibition is a traveling exhibit on its way to The Children’s Museum from the Musée de la nature et des sciences in Quebec, Canada. The exhibit is designed to introduce Museum visitors to the world of microorganisms and how germs live, spread and are eventually killed.
- This is an incredibly relevant exhibit to have at The Children’s Museum in 2010 as the world has been exposed to a very serious flu virus and news coverage of such outbreaks are extensive. The exhibit is meant to “demystify the germs we hear about in the news, to understand the issues surrounding them and to learn about possible treatments” (Musée de la nature et des sciences in Quebec, Canada, 2009)
- The exhibit is complete with written information, games, video images, pictures, giant-scale germ models, artifacts, costumes, toys, microscopes and play areas.
