Our Body: The Universe Within will let visitors see the inner workings of the human body during the world-renowned exhibit, which debuts to the public on Saturday, October 22. The seasonal exhibition includes approximately 200 real-life human specimens in a fascinating, artful, educational and dignified display. The exhibition will be on display through Sunday, April 23, 2017.
Appropriate for all ages, Our Body literally goes “under the skin” on an organ and systematic level to reveal the mysteries of human anatomy. Visitors will tour three-dimensional human bodies, specimens and organs, which were preserved using a process known as polymer impregnation.
Polymer impregnation is a relatively new method of preservation whereby bodily fluids are replaced by liquid plastic, which is then hardened to create a solid, durable anatomic specimen that will last indefinitely. The process leaves even the finest, most delicate tissue structure virtually intact, down to the microscopic sphere, making the process invaluable for medical study.
The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is located at 4801 Dreher Trail North in West Palm Beach and is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. After the pre-ticket sales, admission to the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium during Our Body: The Universe Within is $16.95 for adults, $12.95 for children ages 3 to 12 and $14.95 for seniors aged 60 and older. Science Center members and children under 3 are free. Planetarium shows are not included in general admission pricing.
