Larger-than-life Human Body Experience (HBX) exhibition at Science Centre Singapore

Spread the love


Our Parenting World, Gor Gor and Di Di moved on to visit the next new exhibition known as the Human Body Experience (HBX) at Science Centre Singapore.

Please click HERE to read about our earlier visit to the Exploring Nature’s Design exhibition. 

The Human Body Experience is very unique. It is the first time we enter the exhibition through the mouth of a giant face and pass through a twisting maze of tunnels through the larynx and lung.


Di Di is touching the lungs which is made of inflated printed canvas and the ribs at the side are made of fibre glass. 

This exhibition enables visitors to go inside the human anatomy through organs, muscles and systems, allowing them to interact and play with the amazing functions of the human body. Combining strobe lighting, mist spray, confined spaces, unsteady surfaces, tactile sculptures, optical illusions, holograms, audio, 3D video and touch pads, visitors will get an unique multi-sensory experience. Audio-visual narration will also engage visitors as they go through the exhibition.  


Gor Gor and Di Di walked through the lungs area which you can see the small airways behind.


The heart model looks so realistic and is pneumatically activated to simulate a beating effect. A combination of light, sound and pneumatics creates an immersive environment. Sound of heartbeat, strobe light and pneumatics are all sensor triggered. 


Gor Gor and Di Di moved through a network of neutrons which is like a maze. It is created within the space and each neuron is internally it. The embedded lights flash randomly to simulate the signals that are transmitted between neurons in the brain. 


Gor Gor and Di Di are wondering what is this tunnel of lights? This is the area where we will take the role of white blood cells responsible to fight off virus/bacteria invasion. The embedded models of invading bacteria randomly light up and visitors will have to hit them to ‘fight’ the invasion.


Professor X is the projected character that introduces the experience with audiovisual narration played through embedded speakers. Visitors will get a better understanding of how the human body works. Gor Gor is at the area where large models of other vital organs in the human body are mounted on the wall. You can feel and touch these models as they are made of latex rubber.



We are at the brain section to learn more about its structures. Brain is very important as it controls our daily functions which include motor, visual, auditory and emotions processing.

Getting out of the human body experiences is interesting just like getting into the exhibition through the mouth of the Giant face, we get out thought an inflated slit which works like an airlock to keep the intestine inflated. We have to push ourselves through the slit to go out. 

Come and visit this interesting and educating larger than life experiences from now to 31 May 2016.

Gor Gor and Di Di enjoyed this exhibition as they get to see, feel and touch the various body organs. Most importantly, they have a better understanding of how the various body parts work now. It arouses their curiousity and make them more interested in Science!

Additional Information:

This larger-than-life exhibition will leave the visitors more knowledgeable about the wonders of the human body with an immersive experience.

  • Visitors are advised to come in something comfortable as there are physical elements in the attraction. They would also require a basic level of physical flexibility and balance
  • The attraction contains enclosed spaces, strobe lighting and special effects that might be uncomfortable for some.

These exhibitions are part of the Singapore Science Festival 2014.
