Our Body: The Universe Within

Opening: January 14, 2010

Have you ever wondered what your body looks like underneath all that skin and how everything works?  OUR BODY: The Universe Within will grant viewers an uncanny look underneath the skin and into the inner workings of the human body.  This fascinating exhibit provides an educational experience showing the different systems within the human body and how they work individually and as part of a team to maintain your overall health.  Actual human bodies and organs are used in the exhibit and have been preserved using a relatively new process called ‘Polymer Impregnation’ or ‘Plastination’ where bodily fluids are removed and replaced with a special liquid that preserves the specimen indefinitely.

Location:
The Children’s Museum
10 King Street West
Kitchener, ON
