Science is beginning to prove just how beneficial laughter, especially continuous laughter really is! Laughter yoga combines simple laughter exercises, light physical activity and gentle yoga breathing. The best part about it is you get the same benefits from fake laughter then you do real genuine laughter.

In this interactive museum experience, explore the fascinating world of food preservation both at home and in larger scale operations. Learn the scientific reason why long-used methods of food preservation continue today and discover new innovations that will affect our food choices into the future. You’ll find something to feed your mind and imagination on the menu! Presented by Nestlé Canada. Supported by the Government of Canada.
