Our Body: The Universe Within Exhibit Coming to Saskatchewan Science Centre
Our Body: The Universe Within is a fascinating, artful and educational exhibit consisting of actual human bodies and organs. This special visiting exhibit, which literally goes "under the skin", revealing the mysteries of the human anatomy, opens May 15, 2010, at the Saskatchewan Science Centre in Regina.
The bodies, specimens and organs have been preserved using a process known as polymer impregnation. It’s a relatively new process where bodily fluids are replaced by reactive plastics, which are then hardened to create a solid, durable anatomic specimen that will last indefinitely.
This exhibit consists of six galleries of actual human anatomical specimens, organized around the systems of the body. Our Body: The Universe Within allows you insight, giving you a true look at the inner workings of the extraordinary human body. You will learn about your own body and, ultimately, learn how to take better care of your health and make positive lifestyle choices.
The exhibition is respectful of the mystery of the human body. Before entering the galleries, you will be asked to silence your cell phones. There is no photography allowed in the exhibition hall including cell phone cameras. No food or drinks are allowed, and be aware that once you have entered the exhibition, re-entry is not permitted.
Our Body: The Universe Within is open from May 15 until September, 2010. For more information visit the Saskatchewan Science Centre’s website.
