BODY WORLDS: PULSE shows the science and splendor of the human body, and deconstructs its form and function through the trailblazing science of Plastination invented by anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens. It presents the body in health and distress, its vulnerabilities and potential, and many of the challenges the human body faces as it navigates the 21st Century. 

BODY WORLDS: PULSE is a convergence of aesthetic anatomy, the latest findings in health and wellness, immersive multimedia, and narrative storytelling threaded with deep metaphors. It shows the possibility of living mindfully, with meaning and vitality, by refracting the story of life and self-actualization, through the donors, who have committed to educating future generations.  

More than 200 plastinated specimens -- including whole bodies, body configurations, translucent slices, and organs, as well as interactive elements, 3D displays, and other multimedia -- are curated and presented in galleries that feature the various systems of the body. The locomotive, nervous, respiratory, circulatory, cardiovascular, digestive, and reproductive systems are presented in ways previously familiar only to medical practitioners. The biology and anatomy of the human body, and the continuum of life, are elucidated through anatomical dissections, scenes, and compositions.  Visitors are taken on an epic journey of discovery through the human body.  

BODY WORLDS: PULSE features donor bodies that belonged to people who declared during their lifetime that their body should be made available after their deaths for the qualification of physicians and the instruction of lay people, in the BODY WORLDS exhibitions. Many donors emphasize that by donating their bodies, they can be useful to others even after death.

Venue Description: Sun.-Tues., 10am-7pm; Wed.-Thurs., 10am-8pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Last entry 45 minutes prior to closing.
