Introducing the newly improved exhibit, Fear: Facts, Phobias, Myths, and More! A newer incarnation of an old favorite, the exhibit will further explore fears, phobias, myths, urban legends, and beyond. It is designed to be interactive, educational, and informative, providing guests with a fun, albeit a bit creepy, and memorable experience.

While the exhibit is full of creepy elements, our primary goal is to educate and inform guests about why we are afraid of certain things. The exhibit will provide a safe and fun space for visitors to face their fears and learn about the science behind them. From creepy crawling critters to clowns, cryptids, and the everyday fears such as simply visiting the dentist, Fear covers the gamut of all things that make our
hairs stand on end.

The exhibit will also feature a variety of myths, urban legends, and lore related to fears and phobias. Visitors will be able to separate fact from fiction and learn the truth behind some of these spooky tales.
Fear will be open until Halloween and is included in general admission and free for Exploreum members.

We strive to keep our exhibits family friendly, but some topics and imagery may be triggering for certain individuals - be it physical and/or mental in nature.
Please be mindful of this while exploring. Everything in this is exhibit is meant to be an immersive learning experience.
