Bodies Revealed at the Putnam Museum
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Exhibition takes visitors through galleries providing an up-close look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body. Many of the whole body specimens are dissected in vivid athletic poses, allowing the visitor to relate to everyday activities. In addition, authentic human specimens illustrate the damage caused to organs by over-eating and lack of exercise. A healthy lung is featured next to a black lung ravaged by smoking in a vivid comparison more powerful than any textbook image.
The human body specimens in the exhibition are preserved through a revolutionary technique called polymer preservation. In this 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 more than a year to prepare.
The Exhibition is currently receiving worldwide acclaim attracting nearly 15 million visitors from cities around the world.
Trinity and the Putnam Museum are collaborating to coordinate a variety of activities in conjunction with the exhibit, including educational seminars, physician presentations, and prevention and awareness events. Trinity healthcare providers also will help serve as guides during the run of the exhibition.
