Eerie yet intriguing exhibit on the human body-A Must See

Experience what tens of thousands have seen with the extended run of the blockbuster exhibition Our Body: at the Detroit Science Center. Cost is $25 for Exhibition only or$28.00 with Imax show.

Our Body: The Universe Within is an eye-opening and educational exhibition comprised of 20 actual human bodies and 135 anatomical displays. It opened at the Detroit Science Center on Jan. 13, 2007 and is expanded to September 3rd run date for viewing.

Our Body: The Universe Within exposes the inner workings of human anatomy by presenting actual human specimens, anatomical displays, reproductions of historic anatomical artwork and much more. By presenting an artful, compelling and dignified environment, guests can connect with the human artifacts on a personal level that helps them to better understand their own bodies.

REVIEW by Kathryn: I found the exhibit intriguing, in a weird sort of way. I was amazed at our technology of preserving the human body as they did and how interesting and scary it was to view this in such a raw display.

If you get a chance, please take a weekend trip out to the Detroit Science Center, before Sept. 3rd, and view the exhibit. It's something you have to see with your own eyes. Not a gross factor, but one of interest and amazement of our human body.

The Imax Show afterwards was a little choppy, but is work seeing for some of the internal video of the human heart.
