Body Worlds and The Cycle of Life

Body Worlds and The Cycle of Life

Presented by Houston Museum of Natural Science at Houston Museum of Natural Science

In addition to showcasing the wonders of human development, the 100+ preserved human specimens – including whole-body plastinates – demonstrate the complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the human body in distress, disease, and optimal health.

In the exhibition, designed by BODY WORLDS’ creative and conceptual designer, Dr. Angelina Whalley, visitors will follow the human body through the span of time and learn about the latest findings in anatomy, longevity, and health.

All specimens presented are preserved through Plastination, an advanced scientific technique invented by pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, which allows specimens to be preserved indefinitely for educational purposes in teaching institutions as well as exhibitions. Dr. von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS exhibitions stem from a body donation program established in the early 1980s that is managed by the Institute for Plastination.

This exhibition is supported by:
Woodforest National Bank
