Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds Vital

There is a new exhibit at the Kentucky Science Center named Body Worlds Vital and it is the latest chapter in the series of Body Worlds Human Saga exhibits. Beginning on January 20th, the Vital series will run through May 19th.

This exhibit is a collection of specimens designed to show guests the essentials for human health and wellness. The exhibit included whole-body plastinates, a large arrangement of individual organs, organ and arterial configurations and translucent slices that give a complete picture of how the human body is designed and works!

The exhibit also tells the story of how to best fight, manage and prevent life-threatening diseases - such as cancer, diabetes, and heart ailments - through healthy choices and lifestyle changes! The series is designed to educate the public about the human body and increase health awareness.
