Part of the Humania exhibition floor

Humania, a new exhibition about the human race, opens at NEMO on Saturday 23 November 2019.

What do you feel attracted to? How do you look at yourself? How is your body constructed, from your origins to your death? What do prejudices say about you? Humania is a new, hands-on exhibition that puts you to work to find out more about your own species: humankind. By participating in physical challenges and working on brain teasers about all kinds of dilemmas you will discover more about how your body and brain work. You will discover loads of things about your body that are too good to miss! The biology, sociology, and the psychology of people will all feature in the exhibition. Humania discusses a host of subjects about who you are: from your name to how you celebrate your birthday, from the amount of willpower you have to the cells that make up your body. Also included are more difficult topics such as sex or death. Are you truly as unique as you think you are? Or are we all alike?

The Humania exhibition is intended primarily for visitors aged twelve and older.
