Travel on an anatomical safari exploring a variety of animals from goats to giraffes and octopuses to ostriches in BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT.
This rarely seen perspective will guide visitors through skeletons, muscles, organs and circulatory systems of some of the world’s most spectacular animals.
Stripping away nature's skin to the bare flesh and bones, ANIMAL INSIDE OUT features more than 100 plastinates including translucent slices, blood vessel configurations, organ configurations and whole-body plastinates displaying the intricate biology and physiology of some of the world’s most spectacular creatures both mammals and in the aquatic realm.
DISCLAIMER: This exhibition features a few human body specimens including one full human plastinate, one human skeleton, and a collection of human internal organs and limbs.
The animals and humans on display are preserved through the anatomical specimen preservation process of Plastination, invented by BODY WORLDS creator and anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens. No animals were harmed in the making of ANIMAL INSIDE OUT.
Yes, BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT is included with admission and membership with Spark.
Yes, members will be required to reserve a timed-ticket to ensure capacity limitations are managed.
ANIMAL INSIDE OUTis made possible with cooperation between various university veterinary programs, zoos and animal groups. No animal was harmed or killed for this exhibition.
Among the animals in the exhibition are human specimens, originating from the Institute for Plastination's body donation program. The generosity of these individual donors has made it possible to present human specimens in this and all of theBODY WORLDSexhibitions.
Average duration of a visit to ANIMAL INSIDE OUT is one hour but guests are welcome to remain in the exhibition as long as they wish, within opening hours.
ANIMAL INSIDE OUTwas designed for visitors of all ages to better understand animal anatomy. Children and adults will be delighted when they discover curiosities about animals – like the reason why reindeers can navigate icy ground, what the giraffe's tongue is capable of, and why bulls have such strength. This exhibition provides an opportunity to see and learn about animals like never before.
Yes - personal, still photography using cell phones are permitted in the exhibition. Video, motion photography filming, or flash photography is not permitted. Professional photography and filming are accredited to members of the media only.
Invented by scientist and anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens in 1977, Plastination is the groundbreaking method of halting decomposition to preserve anatomical specimens for scientific and medical education.
Plastination is the process of extracting all bodily fluids and soluble fat from specimens, replacing them through vacuum-forced impregnation with reactive resins and elastomers, and then curing them with light, heat or certain gases, which give the specimens rigidity and permanence.
