Who am I?



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.

Collect DNA to catch a criminal, discover what your voice sounds like as a member of the opposite sex or morph your face to see what you’ll look like as you age in our innovative 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.
