Dr Diana Rivas Institute of Neurological Sciences said "The museum is divided in different sections. We have infectious diseases, tumors, vascular and degenerative diseases. The main objective is education. We want people to come and say, "I'm going to take better care of my health and my brain." There's a small percentage of people, regardless of their age, who get scared. They react by vomiting or fainting. "

The museum is open to scientists as well as the general public. Around 20,000 people visit it every year. Visitors get to touch actual skulls too. But this isn't a place for the faint of heart.
