The NEC and Imagine Exhibitions have announced that Real Bodies: The Exhibition will make its debut at the NEC on this Friday (08/06) for a limited time, ending in August. This is set to be a fascinating and thought-provoking experience, taking visitors on a journey of exploration surrounding the physiology, culture and emotion of human beings.
The powerful display will host real, perfectly preserved human bodies and over 200 anatomical specimens. Digging deep into the beauty of the body, mind and soul. Inviting you to explore the entire human experience from birth to death. Tackling the questions – where do we come from? What are we made of? And why we are here?
The Exhibition consists of ten dramatic and compelling galleries that offer unique perspectives on human anatomy and its importance in world cultures as well as the emotional expression embedded in each of our physiological functions. This comprehensive educational exhibition pushes boundaries while seamlessly blending art, science and emotion as a museum of self.
Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions, says: “It explores the symbolic and cultural significance that bodily systems – such as the nervous system and circulatory system – have had from the beginning of time, and questions why we do what we do and how we do it. Whether or not a visitor is spiritual, they’ll emerge from Real Bodies: The Exhibition with a sense of greater connection —a connection to the whole of humanity.”
Visitors should note guidance before visits and are advised to determine whether the exhibition is right for certain individuals and children.
