Yeah yeah yeah, we know this isn't what you'd expect from a prestigious historical museum. But guess what? NOTHING in NYC should surprise you. 

But don't worry, you won't need to actually take drugs, just to make that clear. It's a simulation, so we all good. 

“Our Senses: An Immersive Experience,” is a new exhibit that's coming to the AMNH and explores the ways in which our brains interpret the world around us. 

This project consists of 11 interactive galleries that will challenge the participant's senses and allow people to experience their surroundings a bit differently from normal. 

If you're cool with changing lights, altered smells and sounds, optical illusions, and other brain teasers, then you should probably check out this exhibit when it opens November 20th.


But we need to warn you guys. This event is not free, and is actually a little pricey. Tickets will cost around $295 for non-members of the museum, and $240 for members. Ouch. 

So if you are seriously interested in going to one of the five openings, every Monday evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. starting November 20th and ending December 18th, then you can check here for more info.

The reason this event is so expensive, as you are probably wondering, is because expert neuroscientists will be there presenting their current research on sensory biology.

So no, this isn't just a fun-house of cool brain games. It's real hard science and that miiiiiiight just constitute a little money to experience. But that's cool!

We hope you guys can check this out, so long you can spend the money to go. Happy learning!
