Bodies Revealed Exhibit Coming Back to Grand Rapids
An exhibit that lets us get an up-close look at what's inside the human body is returning to Grand Rapids.
Bodies Revealed, which features real, whole and partial body specimens that have been preserved is coming to the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
It's been almost 10 years since the exhibit was last in Grand Rapids.
"This phenomenal exhibition about the amazing and complex machine we call the human body, more than a dozen full body human specimens and hundreds of organs are respectfully displayed to tell the story of the miraculous systems at work within each of us. With a reverent, academic approach, this display allows people of all ages to more closely observe the skeletal, muscular, nervous, digestive, respiratory, reproductive and circulatory systems, and to absorb information normally reserved only for medical professionals.
Many of the whole body specimens are presented in vivid athletic poses that allow visitors to better understand their own everyday motions and activities, while other specimens illustrate the damage that can be caused to organs by habits like over-eating, lack of exercise and smoking."
The exhibit will open November 16, 2019, with tickets going on sale this fall.
