The mysteries of human body have always fascinated people, as a child we were amazed to learn how our muscles work, or how our skeleton looks like under X-rays. It is a complicated and harmonious organization, and this interesting exhibition helps us to understand better the characteristics of our body.
BODIES 2.0: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is a scientific, educational exhibit comprised of approximately 200 specimens including whole body specimens that have been preserved using a method known as polymer impregnation. This unique exhibition goes “under the skin, ” revealing the complexity of the human body and allowing visitors an up-close, 3-dimensional look at their inner make-up. Rather than use models of the human body, the exhibition uses actual human bodies to provide the general public a look at what normally only doctors and scientists are allowed to see first-hand, making this a once in a lifetime experience.
The goal of BODIES 2.0: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is that visitors leave with a deeper understanding of the body’s form and function and a stronger appreciation for staying fit and healthy. If you happen to have any questions you can ask the medical students who are there to help and provide extra information.
