Bodies: The Exhibition





I went on a field trip today with my Mom and Aunt. We went to Cincinnati to see Bodies: The Exhibition. It was very interesting and informative.


A little information on the Exhibit:


"This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to come face-to-face with full human bodies and partial body specimens in a way never seen before. It’s the ultimate anatomy lesson, featuring real human bodies. These meticulously dissected bodies are preserved through an innovative process and respectfully presented, giving visitors the opportunity to view the beauty and complexity of their own organs and systems.
In addition to providing an up-close look inside our skeletal, muscular, respiratory and circulatory systems, visitors will walk away with a better understanding of what makes us tick and the importance of healthy lifestyles and taking care of the only body you’ll ever have. The basic premise of the exhibition is simple: If people better understand their bodies, they’ll better understand how to care for them. And in a society filled with an overweight, over medicated, and sleep-starved majority, it seems the best medicine could be a healthy dose of body education."
If the Exhibit is in your area...... I would highly recommend that you see it.
