BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota

SkateboarderIn a new special presentation of the original exhibition of real human bodies, witness the human body living through time—as it changes, grows, matures, peaks and finally wanes.

In BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life, the latest exhibition from physician and pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, you'll see the body throughout the human life cycle and across the arc of aging.

Real human specimens, preserved through Dr. von Hagens' remarkable process of plastination, will reveal the human body in all its phases and stages of health. You'll see individual organs and systems, as well as full-body plastinates in various action poses, including a baseball player, a ballet dancer, a pair of ice skaters, a woman executing a yoga pose, a male gymnast, and more.

BODY WORLDS: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies, which debuted in St. Paul in 2006, was the most powerful—and most popular—exhibition in Science Museum of Minnesota history. BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life builds upon and enhances that life-changing exhibition experience.

Take a breathtaking tour of the human life span from conception to old age. It's a journey you won't soon forget.
