Visitors of all ages can drop into the Sackler Educational Lab to celebrate the wonders of the human brain and learn how this great organ processes the world around us. We will be joined by neuroscientists who will lead informal discussions, experiments, and activities with visitors.


The Museum gratefully acknowledges The Mortimer D. Sackler Foundation, Inc. for its support to establish the Sackler Brain Bench, part of the Museum’s Sackler Educational Laboratory for Comparative Genomics and Human Origins, in the Spitzer Hall of Human Origins, offering ongoing programs and resources for adults, teachers, and students to illuminate the extraordinary workings of the human brain.
