Our Senses: An Immersive Experience engages the senses and challenges perceptions of reality through a series of immersive and playful rooms.
Every day, we perceive the world around us through our senses. But it turns out that our senses are much more than just sight, smell, hearing, touch, balance, and taste. And for humans, our perception of “reality” isn’t exactly what it seems.
Our Senses explores the relationship between our senses and perception, and reveals how the brain actively constructs our perception of reality.

Throughout the exhibition, highly immersive sensory simulations demonstrate a fundamental aspect of a specific sense, with accompanying "How Does It Work?" sections explaining the biology behind that sense.
Activity stations – including games, illusions, scent stations, and more – demonstrate the role of the brain in processing sensory information to construct our perception of the world. An interactive presentation reveals the distinctive features of human perception.
Experience how the brain deals with conflicting information in a "wavy" room that feels flat but appears distorted, manipulate 3-D animations of brains to compare the neural pathways of different species, and explore the potential for artificial intelligence to extend the senses with a hands-on activity.
