Good Lord......I work with the Science Museum......how did I miss this?! Somehow I did. Timing is perfect for us, though, our 1st Grader is just starting to learn super basics about the human body and has shown an interest, so we'll be going for sure.
Opening next month at the Science Museum of Minnesota is an exhibit about the human body that has proven a huge hit across the globe.
The St. Paul museum has announced the critically acclaimed Body Worlds Rx exhibition will open for a 12-week run on Friday, Oct. 4.
The exhibition uses real human specimens – yes, real cadavers – that have been plasticized so as to be preserved.
The specimens are then used to "demonstrate the complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the human body in distress, disease, and optimal health."
