Whole-body plastinates, created from people who have donated their bodies for Plastination, the advanced scientific technique invented by pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, with the express purpose of educating future generations about health, teach us the story of our lives like no textbook can.

All human specimens presented are preserved through Plastination, an advanced scientific technique invented by pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens which allows specimens to be preserved indefinitely for educational purposes in teaching institutions as well as exhibitions.

This exhibit provides a truly unique opportunity to look within yourself and gain a whole new perspective on what it means to be alive.

Body Worlds is a travelling exhibit that has visited Boston's Museum of Science a number of times, (2006 & 2019) as well as stand alone exhibits near the Faneuil Hall area.  

Many high school groups in the Boston area got the opportunity to visit the exhibit on field trips for science and anatomy class support. 

One of the more thought-provoking and interesting exhibits we have ever seen.
