The human body is a fascinating machine! We learn about it in school and scientists study it daily, but there is still many mysteries about our bodies that have yet to be exposed. If you are a science geek or just purely interested in the marvel of the human body
head on over to the California Science Center and see Dr. von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS: Pulse, which opened May 20, 2017. The largest BODY WORLDS exhibition, Pulse brings together anatomy and the latest health and wellness findings in a visually compelling and informative exhibition.
BODY WORLDS: Pulse provides an opportunity to learn about human anatomy, physiology and health through a specially curated exhibition focused on our bodies in modern day life. More than 200 plastinated specimens — including whole bodies, body configurations, translucent slices, and organs, as well as 3D displays — are presented in galleries that feature the various systems of the body.
What will I see?
-More than 200 plastinated specimens, including 23 full body specimens
-Interactive displays like the “Anatomical Mirror”, that show visitors how vital organs are positioned in their own body
How Long Will The Exhibit Be on Display?
Body Worlds: Pulse continues through February 20, 2018 at the California Science Center. Please visit www.californiasciencecenter.org for more detailed information and ticket prices.
