Washington DC Photo Gallery BODIES...The Exhibition

BODIES...The Exhibition

Have you ever wondered what’s underneath your skin?
After seeing this Exhibition, you will finally know. BODIES...The Exhibition allows people to learn about their own bodies and, ultimately, teaches how to take better care of their health and make positive lifestyle choices. What makes the exhibit so compelling (real bodies in everyday poses) is also what makes it most controversial. Without those very features, the exhibit would not be such a powerful educational experience. The exhibition enables visitors to see and understand the medical conditions of their friends and loved ones in a whole new way – by highlighting pressing health concerns, including obesity, breast cancer, colon
cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, ectopic pregnancy, arthritis, osteoporosis and bone fractures. The exhibition also highlights damage done to organs due to the perils of smoking and dietary excesses. Bodies...The exhibition continues to draw strong support from educators and parents. The exhibition is a “must-see" for those who are interested in science and health. Bodies...the Exhibition is Now Open For a Limited Engagement Through October 14th. OPEN at 10am (Museum Closes at 7pm; Last Entry at 6pm). Special Considerations: Some specimens have exposed genitalia, and there's an alternate route for people who are upset by the "fetal development" exhibit.

A red glowing siloutte of a man suspended in a glass case. This specimen went through a process called "corrosion casting": the arteries are injected with a red polymer that hardens. The remaining body tissue is chemically removed. The cast effect is stunning. The circulatory system (or cardiovascular system) design looks simular to a delicate sea coral with capillary branches thinner than hair.
