Body Worlds Rx

About this Experience

Head Path Side

October 4, 2019-January 5, 2020

Experience the wonder of Body Worlds with a new generation, in a whole new way - one that may even prompt you to take better care of your health. 

Curated by Dr. Angelina Whalley, medical doctor and strong health advocate, Body Worlds Rx gives us a better understanding of diseases and illnesses that may affect us or someone we know.

Through the preservation process of plastination, you’ll get unique views of actual human bodies and how they work. See more than 100 human body specimens, like:

  • Healthy and diseased organs displayed side-by-side to illustrate the differences

  • Full-body specimens that are posed realistically to show what our bodies look like when they are making basic movements such as sitting, walking or running.

You’ll glimpse inside the human body in a rare and authentic way as you learn about the importance of mindfulness and health. Body Worlds Rx is only here for 12 weeks - see it before it’s gone!

It’s up to school staff to make the decision about whether they feel it’s appropriate for their students to attend BODY WORLDS Rx.

To aid in this decision, we have a family and educator guide available. It gives an overview of what to expect from the exhibit, encourages discussion, and provides conversation-starting questions.
