Measuring Man

Do you think you know yourself well? You only think so! You probably know how much you weigh, how tall you are, or what size of clothing fits you. Perhaps you can correctly judge your eyesight, hearing, blood pressure and lung capacity. But what about your reflexes? Sensitivity to stimuli? Ability to eyeball how much something weighs?

Our bodies are excellent research material – always “on hand”, ready to undergo various tests and experiments, including those you’ve never even heard about until today. The Measuring Man exhibition offers many surprising challenges. You’ll explore the limits of your abilities and compare them with others. This way, you’ll discover your own uniqueness and common features shared by most people.
