WHAT: BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in motion
What is the purpose of the
?BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in motion? exhibit?
The aim is to educate and excite the public about the inner workings of the human body and to show the effects of poor health, good health and lifestyle choices.
What is Plastination?
It is a technique that halts decomposition and preserves anatomical specimens for scientific and medical education. The process extracts bodily fluids and replaces them with reactive plastics.
Why are the bodies posed the way they are?
By positioning the bodies in motion, it allows the visitor to relate the body to real life situations, therefore providing an educational appeal. They are positioned based on anatomical systems.
Is ?BODIES HUMAN? an appropriate exhibit for children?
Nearly 20 million people, including young children, have viewed similar exhibitions around the world. It is important to note that the exhibit includes full-body plastinates with exposed genitals. We recommend the exhibit for school groups in Grades 5 and up.
Children under 13 must be accompanied by responsible adults during their visit. The
decision is left to the discretion of the parent.
Why did Lynx Exhibits bring this exhibit to small venues?
Lynx has made a commitment to bring exciting, educational exhibits to the public and school children of all ages.
Lynx feels these "blockbuster" exhibits should be accessible to smaller markets.
Will I be able to touch any of the exhibits?
While you will be able to get very close to the plastinates, visitors are not allowed to touch them.
Can I take photographs or film
in the exhibit?
Photography and filming, including pictures
taken with cell phones, are not allowed in the BODIES HUMAN exhibit.
How long can I stay at the exhibit?
You can stay as long as you like. But we recommend allowing yourself about one to two hours. The length of time will vary on how long each visitor wishes to examine each specimen and read the information provided. The last admission is one hour before closing.
