In my skin, the expo on the largest organ of the human body

  • Envelope of life and identity, marker of time and environment, the skin is our largest organ, twice as organ, twice as heavy as our brain.
  • The Musée de l'Homme, in association with L'Oréal researchers, proposes a immersive journey, combining sensory experiences, projections and new devices. Be careful, it's quite technical. We do not recommend the exhibition without a guided tour for children under 10 years old.
  • The objective is to show the complexity that is hidden in our envelope through a journey that will take you through the successive structures of the skin: the horny layer, the epidermis, the dermis, the hypodermis. the successive structures of the skin: the horny layer, the epidermis, the dermis, the hypodermis. You will meet hairs, vessels, collagen fibers...
  • Original devices show the different hazards that the skin undergoes daily. The passage of time the migration of cells to the surface where they die after thirty days. The passage of years on the faces.
  • How does our skin resist the water that passes over it every morning in the shower? To variations in temperature that assail us? To the cold that dries us out and above all, to the sun, public enemy number 1. What are these millions of bacteria doing on the surface of our skin?
  • To finish this journey, you will discover the piercing through the ages and cultures. Yet another another story and another journey.
