So, what is the Halle Heart Children's Museum? Well, it's an interactive, hands on museum, dedicated to teaching kids all about the heart, how it works, how it compares to the organs of other animals, and how we can take care of one of our most vital organs!
You'll find 8 huge sections in the museum, where you can explore the anatomy and mechanics of the heart, how exercise affects the heart, the effects of tobacco on the heart, and more! There is also a spacious theater, where you can see movies about how the healthy choices affect heart health, or how to recognize the warning signs of a heart emergency and how to call for help.
