The overwhelmingly popular “Bodies Revealed” exhibit explores the human body in an intimate and informative way, giving visitors an unprecedented way to view “what lies beneath” the surface of the skin.
Developed by Premier Exhibitions, Inc., “Bodies Revealed” provides an in-depth view of the beautifully complex and intricate network of internal organs and systems in a very up-close and personal way. The exhibition displays more than 200 whole and partial human body specimens that have been preserved by a revolutionary technique called “Polymer Preservation,” which can take more than a year to prepare and intricately showcases the complexity of the body’s bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs. “Bodies Revealed” leads guests through nine self-guided galleries, each one a precise and detailed look into a specific part of the body, its functions and its importance to the rest of the body. The galleries include: The Skeletal System; Muscles and the Nervous System; Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, Reproductive, Endocrine and Circulatory Systems; Fetal Development; and Treated Body. The bodies on display are poised in athletic positions, giving guests a relatable view of the body in action. Some exhibits display the full body, while others showcase just one intricate piece, such as the lungs or intestines.
