BODY WORLDS Vital . due to popular demand since its arrival in late November 2013, is extending its stay here in Boston through the summer and now running through September 14th. This groundbreaking exhibition was produced at Faneuil Hall Marketplace by Salem, MA-based marketing company The Gold Group, making this the first presentation of BODY WORLDS Vital in the Northeast.
Physician and anatomist Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS exhibitions are the precedent-setting
museum quality exhibitions of real human bodies. These in-depth anatomical studies, compositions, and representations allow visitors a penetrating gaze at what lies beneath the skin - the keenly intelligent design, mysteries and function of the human body. The bodies are preserved through a remarkable process developed by Dr. von Hagens called Plastination, which enables visitors to actually see inside the body. More than 50 million visitors have seen BODY WORLDS exhibitions worldwide.
