It's sometimes called the best medicine, a moment of enlightenment, and the purest expression of joy. But just what is laughter? What is it used for? Are we the only animals who laugh? When you think about it, laughter is kind of a funny thing itself.

Did you know the average person laughs 18 times per day? Without even realizing it, this behavior plays an important role in our daily life. It's the glue of our social relationships, in family and at work. Laughter makes it possible to unite groups, to punctuate an agreement, to express a positive emotion, or break the tension of a negative one. It even has beneficial health effects too!

Designed for children, this exhibition will immerse you in a feelgood phenomenon as old as mankind, common to all ages, and all cultures. With interactive 'edutainment' games and immersive scenography, children can explore the functioning and specificities of laughter, experience its triggers, discover the laughter of other animals, the contagion of laughter, its social role, and its health benefits.
