The Giant Heart
What's 13-feet tall and can keep a beat?
The Museum’s new Giant Heart is a vibrant, three-dimensional structure—both virtual and physical—that modernizes the idea of the Museum’s old iconic walk-through heart.
Standing more than 13-feet high and eight-feet wide, the Giant Heart brings the heart's complex and precise action to brilliant and visible life. Send your pulse to the heart and make it beat in time with your own. You can also switch between the exterior view and a series of interior views of the heart.
It's the most amazing view of the heart you can get without rib spreaders.
