Prepare to see your insides later this month. BODIES REVEALED, an Exhibition featuring carefully preserved real anatomical specimens will be open at Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center on January 28 through May 21 to the public.

“I think people need to be more in touch with the body they live in,” said Roy Glover, Ph.D., chief medical director of the Exhibition. “It’s very important to understand the things we do to it that can care for it or that can harm it. The exhibit puts people in close touch with actual bodies that will help them understand it a lot better.”

Visitors to the Exhibition learn the detailed structure and function of the human body through galleries providing an up-close look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body.

Using a revolutionary technique called polymer preservation, the human body specimens to be displayed have been permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber that is treated and hardened. The end result is a rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcasing the complexity of the body’s many bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs.

Sci-Port will get your blood pumping with daily programs and demonstrations to complement the Exhibition daily from 2 – 5 p.m. from January 28 through May 21.
