I think we all at one time or another have wondered, ” How exactly does my body function?”  Well now you have to wonder no more. There is currently an exhibit at the Triangle Town Center here in Raleigh called “Our Body, The Universe Within” https://ourbodyraleigh.com/

Last here a decade ago, it has returned bigger and better than ever. This unique exhibit displays actual preserved human corpses and fetuses. They use a technique called “polymer impregnation” ,which in essence preserves the bodies and internal organs EXACTLY as they are. Muscles ,tendons and even arteries are there to amaze  all who visit.

The exhibit is broken down into the different parts of the human anatomy. Brains, hearts and lungs are some of the few things to behold. I don’t want to give away too much but to see the ENTIRE human body in it’s natural state is amazing.

I think the area displaying a smokers lungs and heart may have to most impact on alot of people. After seeing that I cannot imagine someone not try to give up smoking or more importantly emcourage young folks to never take up the habit. The entire experience was eye opening to say the least. Humans are truly a unique self sustaining species.

Come take a DEEP look and see how. Our Bodies is open currently selling tickets until the end of February 2019.

    This seems like the perfect trip for my son once he’s a bit older. Such a great learning moment for both of us! In my mind, we’re going to travel the country hitting cool museums and parks. I so want to be an RV family!

    I will have to visit some of these places when I am back in North Carolina. I haven’t been since I was stationed there when I was in the military.

  3. OH MY GOSH! This is so fascinating, my son learned all about the body in school, this would be a great follow up lesson for him. I don’t know if the little one would enjoy it as much.

  4. My daughter loves the anatomy! This is Fantastic.. I wonder is this coming to Tennessee. I need to check and see cause Madison would really love this

    This exhibit looks like it might be near the Marbles Museum (which is my children’s favorite place in the world). I may need to go visit my mom so I can see The Body exhibit while it is there.

  6. I remember something similar here in New York. The human body and all the things it can do amazes me. It is like another universe with living organisms inside.
