A look inside ‘Our Body Exhibit’ at the South Florida Science Center


Sunday, Apr. 23 is the last day you can actually see yourself from the inside out. 

The “Our Body: The Universe Within” exhibit at The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium will make its way to Asia after the weekend. It won’t be coming back. 

The award-winning exhibit displays 12 preserved human bodies and 200 specimens — organs and bones. The bodies were preserved through a process called polymer impregnation, a relatively new method. Fluids are replaced by liquid plastic that hardens to create a solid, permanent anatomic specimen. 

Check out the Facebook Live below:

Whether you're squeamish or not, you’ll likely walk away from this exhibit with a stronger appreciation for your health. After all, by going, you’re gifting yourself with exclusive access to see what only doctors have been able to see for years. 

Consider this your last call for something you don’t want to miss.
