Wonder Years is an 1,800 square foot exhibition found in the museum's Human Body Gallery. A section of the exhibition examines the brain, revealing how both genes and experiences influence its development. The importance of relationships to healthy development is highlighted in the exhibition through videos and opportunities to interact with young children. An area for younger visitors and their caregivers encourages storytelling and creative play. Another section pulls back the curtain on researchers, showing how they study young children and come to understand early childhood development. A final area explores the implications of this science and invites visitors to consider our community and societal responsibility for our youngest citizens.
