For decades, the Exploratorium has been dissecting cow eyes and teaching visitors about the similarities between their eyes and our own eyes. If you’ve ever wondered what that’s like, you’re in luck. Tonight, you will have the chance to step into the shoes of an Exploratorium Explainer and dissect a cow eye yourself!

The Visitor Experience Facilitators are a cohort of informal educators who help guests understand, question, and experience the museum on a deeper level.
