Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Real Life Exhibit appropriate for all ages?

The Real Life Exhibit is open to everyone, regardless of age. We regularly host school groups, civic organizations, retirement communities, and more. The Real Life Exhibit is most appropriate for children ages 10 and up.

Is parking available?

Yes, free parking is available at both locations.

Is the Real Life Exhibit wheelchair accessible?


Is the Real Life Exhibit only for Christians?

Not at all! The Real Life Exhibit is an opportunity for people of all faiths — or no particular faith — to learn more about the lives of people in crisis. No religious participation is required as part of the tour. The Real Life Exhibit does reflect the mission and calling of Medical Teams International, which includes references to God and opportunities for prayer.

How long is a tour?

It takes between 45 and 60 minutes to go through the Real Life Exhibit. At the end, there is a reflection room that can seat up to 50 people for a 15-30 minute time of reflection. Most groups spend an overall time of 1 1/2 hours on a tour. If your group is large, more time will be needed to allow for a staggered starting of smaller groups.

Is adult supervision required?

We recommend one adult for every 12 students. Real Life Exhibit volunteers will serve as greeters, hosts, and discussion facilitators. We will normally have at least one volunteer in the exhibit at all times, but our volunteers are not responsible for supervising every student in your group.
