Examine Themes of Food, Nature, and Culture During This Food Exhibit on Saturday

Foodies, mark your calendars now! The traveling exhibition “Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture” has made its way to Houston for the first time at The John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science. Check it out this Saturday beginning at 9:00 a.m.!

Organized by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, Our Global Kitchen explores the complex and intricate food system that brings what we eat from farm to fork and considers how producers in the future might feed the Earth’s growing population. This exhibition will include digital interactives, dioramas, and striking models.

Large-format and interactive displays bring to life important global and cultural food ecosystems that affect our day-to-day relationship with food. The diets of iconic figures such as Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and activist Mahatma Gandhi are also displayed as part of this exhibition, which will be at The Health Museum – Houston’s most interactive science and health learning.

In the heart of Houston, The Health Museum inspires passion and curiosity in health, the medical sciences, and the human body. With over 2.5 million visitors, The Health Museum is the most interactive and popular science learning center of its kind and a favorite among Houstonians.

Learn more about the food you love during “Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture.” General admission to The Health Museum is free for children two and under; $8 for children 3 to 12 years old and seniors 65 and above; and $10 for adults. Active and retired personnel receive half-off admission for up to four people.
