Body Worlds will leave you with a profound understanding of what makes you move, what makes you tick, and what makes you unique. This multimedia exhibition about health, wellness, and living is unlike any other, and presents the rare opportunity to learn about the forms and functions of anatomy. See what a healthy body looks like, learn how poor diet and disease can affect you, and begin to understand the vulnerability and potential of the human body.

In a scientific breakthrough, trailblazing scientist Gunther von Hagens invented the process of Plastination. Plastination results in a highly preserved sample of human bodies or body parts that do not smell or decay, and retain most properties of the original sample. Gunther von Hagens developed and curated the samples himself, and has toured his samples to more than 50 cities worldwide- attracting more than 29 million visitors! The bodies are provided by donors who will their body to the plastination process, with the hope of contributing to scientific research and education for future generations.

The anatomy of the human body is truly fascinating, and as such it should be celebrated. While ogling these specimens, you’ll gain insight as to what really makes you, you. One of the most sought-after expositions, do not pass up the chance to experience Body Worlds before it embarks to its next destination city!

Excellent thought-provoking exhibit!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This was by far the best exhibit at discovery times sq. The whole journey was incredible and thought-provoking as well as a reminder as to how amazing the human body actually is. Takes 1-2 hours to go around which means you can potentially do all the exhibitions at discovery in one day if you want!
