Discover the secrets of the human body at Body The Exhibition. Body The Exhibition will guide its visitors through the fascinating life of our body and will make it possible for them to see deep under
the skin, from head to toe.
At the exhibition, visitors will see the skeletal system, muscles, reproductive organs, breathing organs, blood circulation and other parts of the human body. A special gallery is dedicated to all details of human foetal development. The galleries are completed with large-area screens with 3D animations and documents. The exhibits are presented in various positions so that the visitor can get an understanding and close look at what is happening in the human body while it is moving, doing sports as well as when resting. Students of medicine will be prepared in every gallery to answer visitor questions or to provide comprehensive explanations of individual exhibits. Visiting pupil groups from schools will be assigned an accompanying expert guide for free.
The scope of the exhibition exceeds everything that one could have previously seen in Europe. On a total exhibition area of more than 2,000 square metres, visitors will encounter several hundred perfectly prepared exhibits including whole-body exhibits.
Body The Exhibition is an unbelievably rich source of knowledge and also impacts significantly on the lifestyles of its visitors. Seeing the black lungs of a smoker with one’s own eyes or a liver affected with cancer is quite a shock for most people.
The interactive part of the exhibition offers visitors an opportunity to try out resuscitation under the expert supervision of medical students. Part of the exhibition is also the “Czech trail in global medicine”. The exhibition is suitable for the whole family, and is also an excellent destination for school excursions.
