Eight stations of this popular exhibition continue to be available for exploration in the Rotunda Area of our Exhibit Gallery.

Brain Matters is a permanent Gateway to Science exhibition thanks to the support of the MetLife Foundation and Bismarck Parks & Recreation District. Current sponsorship of Brain Matters is provided by St. Alexius Medical Center.

Visitors can examine actual human brain specimens, touch a brain model, compare MRI’s of healthy brains, see the effects of alcohol and drugs on the adult brain and discover what happens when there is brain damage.

Visitors can even disassemble and identify the different parts of a 3-D brain puzzle.
