The Mystery of the Missing Apostrophe

I know what's wrong!  An apostrophe has gone missing from this sign at the Science Museum! OH NO!

Oh wait, here it is!  It was hiding on a label for some tea! Mystery solved!

Let's do a refresher, shall we?  If a word is a contraction of two words (Let's for "let us" or something's for "something is", then it gets an apostrophe.  If a word is a plural (two or more of something; one hundred monkeys, a plate of tacos), it does not. 

Contractions:  Apostrophe 
Plurals: No apostrophe

All clear?  Now, go forth and erroneously punctuate no more!
