Body Worlds Vital
06 Jun. 2017 - 08 Oct. 2017
BODY WORLDS Vital celebrates the potential of the human body and the body in motion through aesthetic presentations of its flawless form and complex functions. Over 44 million people have experienced BODY WORLDS Vital in over 115 cities world-wide including Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City- now here’s YOUR chance to see it in Trondheim - for the first time in Norway.
The exhibition is a collaboration between NTNU University Museum, Trondheim Science Centre and the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters.
BODY WORLDS brings together a collection of real human bodies, specimens, organs and body slices which have been willed by donors and preserved through plastination, a ground-breaking method for specimen preservation invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens.
This is a rare opportunity to experience a truly unique exhibition that helps us to understand the wonder, sophistication and fragility of our own bodies.
