Through artifacts, specimens, and immersive media experiences, learn how life and death are part of a universal, continuous, and cyclical process. This thought-provoking exhibition explores cultural and natural responses to life and death and asks big questions including: “What if I don’t want to die?”, “What will happen to my body?” and “What will happen to my ‘self’?”. Experience how life goes on after death—and could not without it.
