Discover the mysteries under your skin

​January 27, 2023

Body Worlds Vital is an incredible exhibition offering an amazing opportunity to understand our anatomy, our health, and to gain a new appreciation for what it means to be human.

Body Worlds Vital will be on view January 27 until April 30, 2023, at your Museum of Natural History. 

This awe-inspiring exhibition educates visitors about anatomy, physiology and health through a series of whole bodies, individual organs and transparent body slices. Displays present the most current information about common diseases, the effects of tobacco use, and the mechanics of artificial body parts. By juxtaposing healthy and diseased organs, the exhibition also encourages healthy lifestyle choices.

Highlights of the exhibition include an aerobatic couple posed in an overhead lift to display the muscular system.

Bodies donated to Body Worlds are preserved through a ground-breaking process called plastination. Invented by scientist Gunther von Hagens, plastination halts decomposition and preserves anatomical specimens for educational purposes.
