608 E. Cherry St., Columbia, Missouri

This museum takes the phrase “hours of family fun” to new levels—and even better, it’s all about improving health and well-being. Interactive exhibits include the Fine Tune Body Shop, focused on body mechanics and maintenance; Snackster, a talking vending machine dispensing advice about food choices; and Body Fair, where you can test your balance, flexibility, grip strength, and other physical abilities. The 3-D film All Systems Go! zips through the human body to reveal how its systems function.

Young doctors-in-training can treat virtual patients in the ER exhibit, while the Healthy Baby exhibit offers young couples ways to keep a future bundle of joy safe and sound during pregnancy.

Open daily except Tues. Admission charged.
