Body Worlds Vital

For the first time, the original Gunther von Hagens exhibition featuring real human bodies lands in Sydney.

Body Worlds Vital will give Australians the chance to see the intricate workings of the body’s interior through the visual display of donated human specimens.

Body Worlds Vital is the only exhibition of real human bodies with an established and ethically reviewed donor program based in Heidelberg, Germany.

Over 150 anatomical specimens donated for the benefit of public education and exhibition have gone through a meticulous year-long process of ‘plastination’.

The resulting specimens illustrate how lifestyle decisions impact the wellbeing and health of our body.

The Body Worlds Vital exhibitions were founded by anatomist and scientist Dr Gunther von Hagens, inventor of the plastination process, and Dr. Angelina Whalley, physician and conceptual designer. They have curated one of the world’s most successful travelling exhibitions since its inception.

With over 30,000 school children attending the Australasian tour so far, Body Worlds Vital is a life-changing unique opportunity to educate students about human biology and anatomy. More impressive than any biology textbook.

The exhibition will provide a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a real human body. The exhibition will capture children’s understanding and empower them to make positive lifestyle changes.
