Coming to Discovery Science Place April 30th – September 4th!
What is the BODIES HUMAN Exhibit?
This unique exhibit is a display of over 100 authentic human specimens, including whole bodies, individual organs and transparent slices preserved through a special process called plastination.
It provides viewers with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to look inside the human body, and to see and understand our own anatomy and physiology. This will provide a new appreciation and respect for the human body and what it means to be human. It’s an inside look at the human body and is designed to show how the choices we make affect our overall health.
The bodies are positioned ‘in motion’ – allowing you to see the body
as it would be in real life situations. The human specimens were obtained from a U.S. supplier to the medical community who works with a plastination laboratory in Taiwan, where the bodies are prepared for educational and scientific purposes.
PLEASE NOTE: BODIES HUMAN is appropriate for school groups in Grades 7 and up. Responsible adults must accompany children under 13, as the exhibit includes full-body specimens with exposed genitalia structures.
