Details:

The Science Museum of Virginia invites you to Boost! your creativity, flexibility, memory, strength (well, you get the picture) in our first new permanent exhibition in a decade. Boost! is a new approach to wellness and self-improvement. It’s neither a sports nor a traditional health exhibit – it’s innovative and insightful.

Boost! features cutting-edge design and technology, providing an unprecedented opportunity to follow your progress over time either at the Museum or online. Boost! shares important scientific knowledge about sleep, memory and physical fitness and the interrelationships among these areas. Boost! even includes a full scale Kitchen Stadium where museum educators can prepare tasty offerings while unlocking the science inside what we eat.

“The Museum’s involvement with Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. inspired us to develop a new way for people to engage in wellness. In Boost!, you can explore a number of areas that are relevant and personal in an extremely fun and engaging way,” remarked Richard C. Conti, Chief Wonder Officer at the Science Museum of Virginia. This exhibition is the first step in the Museum’s “Inspire the World” campaign – a $60M effort to transform the Museum.
