Pacific Science Center’s “Grossology” exhibit on display
"Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body" exhibit is on display at the Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Ave. N., Seattle. Explore the good, the bad and the downright ugly about how our bodies work. The exhibition uses sophisticated animatronics and imaginative exhibits to tell about runny noses, body odor and much more. Take a "Tour du Nose" to explore 10 nasal features, including how your nose acts as an air filter, a smell sensor and a mucus producer. It's a fun and educational look at our bodies. There's plenty more to see and do at the Science Center; make it a day for the entire family. Hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily with admission of $11.75-$19.75.
