Once upon a time, the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry featured a model of a human heart large enough to walk thru, to wit:


Quote:
... Popular feature of the Natural Science Wing in the Museum is this huge model of a human heart. A door at the rear of the heart al lows visitors to walk into the model to see inner workings (complete with sound effects).

I was in a heart like that about 70 years ago in Philadelphia. Franklin Institute. Memorable experience. Could not stay in it long, as my father was claustraphobic and had to get out.

And, now, a Giant Rotary Dial Telephone at Boston's Children's Museum.

I rather like the docent-style text in the caption, myself.
