The newest exhibition coming to Science North offers visitors the unique opportunity to dive deep and explore the intricate biology and physiology of human health and the dramatic effects of disease.

From organs and muscles to the nervous system and skeleton, BODY WORLDS RX gives an unprecedented look inside the most sophisticated mechanism in the world, the human body. The exhibit opens Saturday.

“BODY WORLDS RX is a world renowned exhibit and we are thrilled to host it until this September. It focuses on contemporary diseases that afflict children and adults and illustrates their causes and effects,” Guy Labine, Science North’s CEO, said in a release. “In addition to the exhibit, Science North will be delivering exciting programing and specialty workshops over the next six months that stimulate curiosity about the science of anatomy and physiology.”

Created by anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, inventor of Plastination science and the creator of the trailblazing BODY WORLDS exhibitions, the exhibit features Plastination, a complex technique that removes fluids from the body and replaces them with plastics that harden.
