Now 12 years after the last appearance, and as health and wellness is on everyone's mind, "Body Worlds" has returned with a new look at the cycle of life.
The groundbreaking exhibit reveals what lies under the skin, showing the effects of poor health and what good lifestyle choices can do for your body.
The newest iteration of the popular exhibit follows the human body from conception to the end of life.
Each body in the exhibit is preserved by plastination, a process invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens that preserves cadavers forever. The bodies look the same without skin, but each has a different story to tell.
