This powerful exhibition explores life by displaying real, perfectly preserved human bodies and more anatomical specimens. More than a simple display of human specimens, REAL BODIES will connect audiences to a deeper sense of what it means to be alive.
The exhibition pushes boundaries while seamlessly blending art, science, and emotion as a museum of the self. Exploring these systems within the body, REAL BODIES reveals deep synergy between breathing, hunger, the rhythm of the heart, love, motion, thought and medicine that makes each person unique.
New! REAL BODIES has added new content designed specifically to help the public understand the complex and cascading effect the virus has on the systems of the body. Developed in consultation with a medical advisor with expertise in emerging infectious disease preparedness and response, the new content presents a multi-faceted—yet easily understood—picture of COVID-19 from an anatomical perspective.
