There are only 12 days left to visit the popular “Bodies Revealed” exhibit at the OdySea in the Desert entertainment destination. The exhibit’s last day for visitors is Sunday, April 21. Be one of the thousands of guests who have seen “Bodies Revealed” since it premiered at OdySea in the Desert in May 2018! This fascinating and real exhibit explores the human body in an intimate and informative way, with an unprecedented view of “what lies beneath” the surface of the skin. The exhibit was last in the Scottsdale/Phoenix market 8 years ago, so make plans now to see this compelling exhibit before it’s gone.
“Bodies Revealed” provides an in-depth view of the beautifully complex and intricate network of internal organs and systems in a very up-close and personal way. The exhibition displays more than 200 whole and partial human body specimens that have been preserved by a revolutionary technique called “Polymer Preservation,” which can take more than a year to prepare and intricately showcases the complexity of the body’s bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs. “Bodies Revealed” leads guests through nine self-guided galleries, each one a precise and detailed look into a specific part of the body, its functions and its importance to the rest of the body. The galleries include: The Skeletal System; Muscles and the Nervous System; Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, Reproductive, Endocrine and Circulatory Systems; Fetal Development; and Treated Body. The bodies on display are poised in athletic positions, giving guests a relatable view of the body in action. Some exhibits display the full body, while others showcase just one intricate piece, such as the lungs or intestines.
“Bodies Revealed” also uncovers modern day health concerns, showcasing the damage done to the body due to the perils of smoking or lack of exercise. Other highlights include the importance of proper nutrition, regular activity and healthy lifestyle choices for people of all ages. According to Dr. Roy Glover, chief medical director for Bodies Revealed, “Seeing promotes understanding, and understanding promotes the most practical kind of body education possible.”
