Disheveling! An extraordinhairy exhibition

13 November 2021 to 13 March 2022

Whether you have brown hair, blond hair, salt and pepper hair – or even if you are bald, you will be challenged by this scientific exhibit that deals not only with human hair and animal fur, but also with plants’ hair! Here we cut the hair in four: four equally tousled zones.

Surprises and discoveries await you at every turn … hair of every kind, hair not like any other, from human hair to hair across the world, and experts in hair will be part of the exhibit to explain hair’s utility in criminology, environment protection…

It’s enough to make the hairs on your arm stand to attention and give you goosebumps as well!

* As this exhibition is very interactive, gloves will be provided to visitors so that they can touch and manipulate the various elements of the exhibition. *

The exhibition won the CASCADE AWARD 2018 for Best exhibit or show – small institution from the Canadian Association of Science Centres.

A production of the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science with the contribution of Heritage Canada and the collaboration of Télé-Québec.
