Event Information

Curious about coulrophobia, pyrophobia, or aviophobia (the fear of clowns, fire, and flying)? Want to know why your adrenaline system kicks into overdrive when you are afraid, causing your breath to quicken, your heart to race, and the hairs on your skin to stand on end?The world's first comprehensive exhibit about the universal emotion, Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear delivers excitement and fun (along with a few shivers) and provides an experiential and holistic view of fear science -- examining physiological, neurological, and sociological aspects of this often misunderstood emotion. Engaging hands-on activities encourage visitors to experience fear in a safe and enjoyable environment, measure their responses, and think about what it means to them.
