The chemistry of love
07.02.2015 – 12.04.2015
This spring the State Darwin Museum reveals the mystery of the most enchanting state of a man – being in love. The exhibition called “The chemistry of love” will certainly appeal to the ingenuous romantics as well as to pragmatics trusting the scientific facts. Visitors of this event will get acquainted with the molecular formula of love, meet the primeval Juliette, see the legendary Spanish fly (one of the strongest aphrodisiacs) and learn more about the traditions of courting and choosing a partner in the animal kingdom.
Modern anthropologists assume that the real age of love is about 2,5 million years! Those who come to “The chemistry of love” exhibit will have a unique opportunity to trace the birth of this feeling.The exhibition shows the evolution in relationships between a man and a woman and tells the visitors a lot of curious facts about the first monogamous couples. An interesting interactive exhibit called “Keep the order” challenges to find the first lovers in the chain of primeval men.
The outstanding neurobiologists will give the visitors of “The chemistry of love” the idea about the main hormones that change human's behavior while they are in love. For example, dopamine makes people look for the partner, noradrenaline takes away their appetite and endorphins give them the magic feeling of happiness. Thanks to the illustration of Irina Semenyuk adults will be able to understand the process of falling in love. Children, in their turn, will enjoy the molecular constructor and a puzzle called “Why do I need this molecular?”
Why not visit this exhibition during your Moscow tour and learn more about the products and smells that help to fall in love. Those who are just looking for their other half should visit the section called “How do we choose?” Don't miss a chance to take part in the popular vote “For whom do we smell?” We hope you will have a lovely time!
