Extended run announced for Body Worlds in Newcastle

Date Posted: 13/09/2014

Body Worlds Vital, the latest exhibition of real human bodies by Gunther von Hagens, is extending its run at the Life Science Centre, Newcastle, to meet public demand.

The exhibition, which has been seen by over 100,000 visitors since opening in May, will now be at Life until 30th November.

Vital is one of six Body Worlds exhibitions from anatomist Dr. von Hagens and celebrates the living human body in its optimal state - healthy, vibrant, vigorous, and in motion. 

Its aim is to give students an unprecedented look at human anatomy, exploring how the body functions and what happens when disease strikes. 

Pupils can explore human anatomy, physiology and health through a series of full body plastinates (human bodies that have been preserved by a process called plastination), individual organs and transparent body slices that give a complete picture of how the human body works.
