Body Worlds

Milwaukee Public Museum Body Worlds!

The Health Professions LLC took a trip to Body Worlds just this last February! It was a fun and free trip for all residents living in our LLC. We purchased tickets ahead of time, took the public bus to the museum, and had a blast!

Residents loved discovering more about the human body, and it fit perfectly for those who are currently taking Anatomy and Physiology.  Seeing blood vessels, being able to touch a real human bone, and discovering the body's different systems and structures was fascinating. It really brought truth to how the human body works, and all its amazing wonders. 

 "In BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life, the latest exhibition from physician and pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, we saw the body throughout the human life cycle and across the arc of aging. More than 200 plastinates—real human specimens preserved through Dr. von Hagens’ invention, the remarkable process called Plastination—revealed the human body in all its stages, across youth, growth, maturity and advanced age, and in all its conditions, from health to distress to disease."
