BODIES: The Experience
On display since November 2005, BODIES…The Exhibition underwent a redesign to offer a more interactive, awe-inspiring experience for visitors. The enhanced Exhibition offers a glimpse into one of the universe's most complex systems-the human body. Showcasing more than 225 real human body specimens, 130 never-before-seen in New York, the Exhibition leads visitors through striking, informative galleries. Each gallery provides an up close look inside a specific system, including skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory and circulatory. Through the visitor's journey the exhibition also offers informative video installations and new hands-on experiences, including a specimen touch booth and Mindball, a unique interactive game where two players control a ball with their brain waves.
