Sometimes they are stinky. Sometimes they are crusty, and sometimes they are slimy. The Grossology exhibition lets visitors explore why their bodies produce mushy, oozy, crusty, scaly, and stinky gunk. Based on a best-selling book by Sylvia Branzei, Grossology uses sophisticated animatronics and imaginative exhibits to show visitors the good, the bad, and the downright ugly about runny noses, body odor, and much more.
Grossology features impolite stations for visitors including an animatronic nose that flows snot called Nigel Nose-It-All; a skin climbing wall that features pimples, warts, wounds, hair, moles, and other skin blemishes; an area in which visitors can match body odors with the area of the body from which they came; and a larger-than-life burping cartoon character drinks from a three-foot soda can that visitors pump.
