Exploring Your Common Senses

Saturday August 24
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Taste, touch, sight, smell, hearing -- how do our senses compare to our furry, feathery and finny friends'? Discover how good your sense of smell is compared with a fox's. Test your eyesight to learn if it's as accurate as a hawk's. Use touch to feel vibrations in water and determine if you could survive as a fish. Explore your senses at the Virginia Living Museum in this fun-filled, hands-on day. Also, explore Riverside's interactive family health display. Stop by Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Backpack Weighing Station and let your child try on a full backpack weighing closest to what they carry during the school year. A physical therapist will talk to you and your child about best practices to avoid back and shoulder pain. Included in museum admission.
