The museum offers affordable membership rates for individuals and families. Visitors enjoy shopping for unique gifts at the museum's Amazing Body Store.

Oversized plates lead to oversized portions, so slim your serving size this week by eating your meals on a salad plate. Your dish will seem just as full- that way you’ll be satisfied with less.
