About

OUR BODY: The Universe Within will expose the inner workings of human anatomy by presenting actual human specimens, anatomical displays, reproductions of historic anatomical artwork and much more. By presenting an artful, compelling and dignified environment, guests will connect with the human artifacts on a personal level that will help them to better understand their own bodies.

The exhibit literally, as well as figuratively, goes “under the skin” exposing the intricacy of the human body and allowing the general public a look at what only doctors and scientists normally are allowed to see first hand. The exhibit will showcase specimens preserved through a polymer impregnation process that replaces fluids with polymers that prevent decay and decomposition.

The exhibit shines a light on the alluring mystery of the human body through the presentation of these fascinating specimens combined with an inspirational and educational message. By highlighting anatomy studies over the past 1,000 years, guests will see how the body’s beautiful complexity has influenced generations of artists and scientists.
