BODY WORLDS 3: The Anatomical Exhibition Of Real Human Bodies

This is a closed, past exhibit; it is not available for viewing.
An anatomical piece in Body Worlds showing the anatomical details of the human body and a horse.

Created by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, BODY WORLDS 3 is the culmination of the German scientist and physician’s 30-year career in anatomy.  Like its predecessors, BODY WORLDS 3 presented more than 200 authentic specimens, including organs and whole body specimens, that have undergone Plastination—von Hagens’ groundbreaking method of halting decomposition and preserving the body after death for medical study, which he invented in 1977.  But von Hagens said the Houston exhibit captured the evolution and refinement of his invention to its outer limits.
