Body Worlds Exhibit at Denver Museum of Nature and Science a must see

If you haven’t heard by now, The Body Worlds “The story of the heart” exhibit has reached the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. This amazing exhibit offers a rare glimpse inside the human body. The exhibit features more than 200 authentic specimens, including entire bodies, individual organs, and transparent slices; all masterfully designed by Dr. Gunther von Hagens and the Institue of Plastination.

This particular exhibit is focused on the heart, how it works, and how it is connected with every other tissue in the body. The focus of the exhibit is to educate the public about the inner working of the human body and to show the effects of both healthy and unhealthy lifestyle choices (the smokers lungs are an especially powerful reminder of this).

Most of the full body specimens are posed in an athletic position and displayed to illustrate specific anatomical features. This is particularly fascinating because many people in the exhibit find themselves moving their own bodies trying to understand how the muscles all work together, or how an old or current injury is affecting them.
To truly understand the power of not only this exhibit, but your own body, you really must make the trip to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science before the exhibit closes July 18th.
