Get to know your body – inside and out, in a stunning new journey exploring the human body through physiology, culture and emotion.

Real Bodies The Exhibition is a powerful thought-provoking exhibition exploring life by displaying 20 real, perfectly and respectfully preserved human bodies and more than 200 anatomical specimens, inviting visitors of all ages to examine the human experience from the first breath to the last in dramatic and moving displays.

Real Bodies digs deeper into the beauty of the body, mind and soul than any other exhibition of its kind and invites you to explore the entire human experience from the first breath to the last. What are we made of? Where do we come from?  Why are we here?

Real Bodies consists of dramatic and compelling galleries that offer unique perspectives on human anatomy and its importance in world cultures as well and the emotional expression embedded in each of our physiological functions. This comprehensive educational exhibition pushes boundaries while seamlessly blending art, science and emotion as a museum of self.

As part of Real Bodies The Exhibition, visitors that book a show ticket for Thursday 2nd August 2018, are invited to attend one of four FREE exclusive classes at 5.00pm (ticket required). Suitable for those aged 16 years old and older, class topics include life drawing, yoga, philosophy, and a session titled ‘Why donate your body to science?
