The most talked about exhibition in the world
This is the first time that an exhibition of this kind has been displayed in Israel. Over 26 million people worldwide have already visited the exhibition. The exhibition is currently on display in the North America, Europe and Asia.
The exhibition's purpose and goal is to reveal and expose the anatomical structure of the human body and its function, in a unique lesson, and to teach us about the complexity of the human body, its anatomy, and the importance of leading a healthy way of life.
The exhibition includes, as aforesaid, 20 authentic whole body specimens, over 130 internal organs, that all went through the process of conservation, which enables, in addition to viewing the marvelous systems of the human body, to observe the way the human body functions, whether in a healthy state or at illness - while it collapses, and to observe the human organs while in distress.
In addition, individual specimens are used for comparison between healthy and diseased organs - healthy lung with that of a smoker, healthy liver with that of an alcoholic liver, and a comparison between an obese human body and a healthy lean one. More on display at the exhibition: the blood system, the nervous system, the digestion system, etc.
The source of the exhibition is from donors – people, who during their lifetime, declared their willingness, by informed consent, to display their bodies at the exhibition, after their death, for the benefit of education, health and the awareness of the wide public to the different systems of the human body.
The unique technique of Plastination and preservation of the human body was invented by the physician and anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens. The exhibition is currently on display in different science museums around the world, and after thoroughly investigating all the display platforms in Israel, the exhibition's owners have decided to choose MadaTech – Israel's National Museum of Science, Technology and Space in Haifa as the appropriate location for displaying the exhibition.
The exhibition was displayed in collaboration with the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa Municipality, Rambam Medical Center and Israel's Cancer Association.
