OUR BODY: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is a fascinating, artful and educational exhibit consisting of approx. 200 actual human bodies and organs. Appropriate for all ages, this exhibit literally 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.
The bodies, specimens and organs have been preserved using a process known as polymer impregnation. OUR BODY: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN allows you the insight to the inside: giving one a true look at the inner workings of the extraordinary human body.
As you enter the exhibit, you will have the opportunity to examine the human body as a whole. Continuing throughout the exhibit, you will journey through each of the body’s major systems allowing you to see first hand how they function and relate to other systems.
The goal of OUR BODY: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is for exhibit-goers to leave with a deeper understanding of the body’s form and function and a stronger appreciation of the uniqueness of each of our individual bodies. The exhibit vividly transmits knowledge about the human organism displaying the specimens in an artful, compelling and dignified environment. Guests will connect on a very personal level with these human artefacts as they use them to better understand their own bodies.
The exhibits also explore how the study of the body has evolved. The specimens serve as an engaging resource that vibrantly illustrates how far mankind has come since Galen drew anatomical sketches in the 2nd century A.D.
