Mollusks in Manhattan
Just down the street, your kids can learn about tiny aliens! The tiny aliens of the invertebrate world!
“Prepare for a journey into the world of the mollusk: a group of invertebrates that has produced the oldest animal alive, the hardest biological material, and a lot of slime.
Humanity. Mollusks. An epic battle for survival.
Straighten your spine, vertebrate. Things are about to get weird.”
Co-founder, Amanda Scochet, on what this 6 foot tall museum entails:
“Our team of engineers, designers and storytellers at MICRO worked with over 30 scientists from the world’s leading research institutions to develop the exhibits, which include two miniature movie theaters, a full-sized holographic aquarium packed with strange beasts, the world’s first 3D-printed octopus brain, and a bucket of slime.”
Just head over to the Bellevue pediatric unit to understand more about these fascinating tiny creatures.
