Our Body: The Universe Within is an eye-opening and educational exhibition comprised of 20 actual human bodies and 135 anatomical displays. It opened at the Detroit Science Center on Jan. 13, 2007.

 

As of May 7, more than 133,000 visitors had experienced Our Body:
The Universe Within
at the Detroit Science Center. The
exhibit helped the museum achieve record-breaking Spring Break attendance with more than 20,284 visitors going through the exhibit April 9-15, surpassing the previous record of 16,161 visitors during Spring Break 2003.

 

 “Our Body: The Universe Within has been an extremely well-received exhibit for the Detroit Science Center,” says President & CEO Kevin F. Prihod. “We’ve seen a record number of visitors walk through our doors. By extending the exhibition run, we will have the opportunity to serve more visitors and provide them an opportunity to see this one-of-a-kind exhibition.”

 

Our Body: The Universe Within exposes the inner workings of human anatomy by presenting actual human specimens, anatomical displays, reproductions of historic anatomical artwork and much more. By presenting an artful, compelling and dignified environment, guests can connect with the human artifacts on a personal level that helps them to better understand their own bodies.

 

The exhibit’s cutting-edge MicroWorld display features intensely magnified images of healthy and diseased skin, organ and cell samples. Visitors can investigate the microscopic forces that impact our health and discover the surreally artistic effect achieved by viewing these samples under extreme magnification.

 

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Science Center is showing the IMAX® Dome Theatre film The Human Body. Using innovative filmmaking techniques, combined with the latest medical and scientific imaging, The Human Body shows us the ordinary miracles that keep our bodies running at full steam from morning ‘til night and the extraordinary marvels of life.
