Explore the intricate biology and physiology of some of the world’s most spectacular creatures in Animal Inside Out, a BODY WORLDS Production, making its U.S. premiere at MSI this March.
This exhibit, from anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens—creator of the trailblazing BODY WORLDS exhibitions—showcases more than 100 animal specimens that have been preserved through the process of plastination, which replaces the body's fluids with plastics to incredibly detailed effect.
From goats to giraffes and octopuses to ostriches, you'll see the inner workings of some of the world's most impressive animals and better understand the evolution of animals and the natural world. Highlights of Animal Inside Out include peering up at a giraffe, witnessing a shark outlined entirely in its dense network of blood vessels, and peeking inside a rabbit’s brain.
Animal Inside Out allows you to compare the anatomical systems of the animal kingdom in great detail. Discover how skeletal and tissue foundations vary across species. Reveal the networks necessary to animal life in the circuitry of the nervous system, and the organs of breathing and digestion. Explore animal evolution and reproduction, and wildlife conservation and preservation. It's a chance to see animals in a whole new way.
