Who Am I?

The gallery is closed to general public until 11:15am on Saturday 12 December and will also be closed on Tuesday 16 December for a private event 

What makes you smarter than a chimp? What makes you smile? What makes you, you?

Who am I? invites you to explore the science of who you are through intriguing objects, provocative artworks and hands-on exhibits.

Discover what your voice sounds like as a member of the opposite sex, morph your face to see what you’ll look like as you age, or collect DNA to catch a criminal in our brand-new interactive exhibits.

Investigate some of the characteristics that make humans such a successful species, such as personality, intelligence and language.

Reflect on the big questions that new techniques in science are raising, and explore how your genetics and brain combine to create your unique identity.

Visit the Who am I? gallery now and discover yourself.
