The Human Body Exhibition

The Human Body Exhibition extends its residence in Dublin

The Human Body Exhibition at The Ambassador Theatre has been extended due to public demand. The exhibition which was due to move on to Europe at the end of April has become one of the top tourist attractions in Dublin drawing visitors from all over the country. It will remain in Ireland until the end of July.

On Thursday 19 April 2012 The Human Body Exhibition welcomed its 100,000th visitor. Kerry Podlawski with partner Paul Flowers from Manchester were welcomed and presented with champagne & flowers by Jason O'Leary, manager at the Ambassador Theatre.

The Human Body Exhibition showcases carefully dissected specimens to provide a window into the miraculous way the body functions and gives visitors the opportunity to see exactly what lies beneath their skin.

The Human Body Exhibition takes visitors on a life-changing journey through nine galleries highlighting the essential components of the human anatomy and illustrating the effects of smoking, obesity and other damage that can be caused by neglecting the body. Visitors will be able to compare a healthy lung with a black lung severely damaged by smoking, offering startling evidence of how an unhealthy lifestyle can significantly harm the body. The exhibition is designed to educate, encourage and enlighten attendees to understand the importance of smart lifestyle choices.

The Human Body Exhibition will be open daily from 10am. Tickets are on sale now.
About the Exhibition

"We are excited to bring this fascinating new exhibition to Dublin," said Noel McHale of MCD. The Human Body Exhibition delivers powerful messages on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and creates a unique and unforgettable experience for our residents and visitors."

The specimens featured in The Human Body Exhibition were donated in accordance with Chinese law to the Dalian Hoffen Biotechnique Laboratory which engages in research and innovation of the Plastination technique, and produces, preserves and provides specimens to medical schools and the general public for educational purposes. The laboratory uses the Plastination technique to preserve the specimens. Through the Plastination process, human tissue is permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber that is treated and hardened. The end result is a rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcasing the complexity of the body's many bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and organs. The full-body specimens can take over a year to prepare. All specimens are treated with the utmost care and respect.
