Exploring the Microbiome:
What are microbes?
Most microbes are single-celled organisms. They are so small that there are more of them on your hand than there are people on the entire planet. Microbes are in the air, on the ground and on the food we eat. The microbe exhibit, located on the sixth floor of the museum, allows you to learn about the microbes on and in the human body and how they function within the world.
