The Science Museum and Minnesota Monthly hosted a reception and preview of Body Worlds & The Cycle of Life on January 17, 2013 before it opened to the public. Guests viewed real human specimens preserved through Dr. Gunther von Hagens’ remarkable process of plastination. The exhibit featured the body throughout the life cycle and in all stages of health.
The exhibit runs through May 5, 2013. Learn more at smm.org/bodyworlds.
