See the new Our Senses: An Immersive Experience before it opens to the public! A weekend of exclusive Member Preview Days begins on Friday, November 17, for Members at the $115 level and above.

Every day, we perceive the world around us through some or all of our senses—including sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste, and balance. But as it turns out, “reality” isn’t ever exactly what it seems to be. 

The new highly experiential exhibition Our Senses: An Immersive Experience delves into how our brains work with sensory organs to shape and reframe our perceptions of everyday encounters. And it reveals how, until recently in our evolutionary history, humans have been oblivious to nature’s other crucial signals, including UV light and electrical fields.
