body worlds - vital, ascot vale

This exhibition may not be for everybody but Mamma and Little Miss thought it was something pretty incredible and very special.

This is the world’s first anatomical exhibition featuring real human bodies and it’s the first time it has been here in Australia. The way these bodies are preserved and presented is really amazing. 

Little Miss has a keen interest in the human body and how it works and was in awe at this exhibition.

Mamma knew this experience would suit her family, and for anyone with interest in the human anatomy - you might enjoy it too.  With over 150 anatomical specimens and displays, this is a great way for adults and little ones to actually see what lies beneath our skin. The exhibition gives us a good insight into how resilient, yet fragile we as humans really are. 

The exhibition includes actual whole-body displays, individual organs, arterial and organ layouts plus exhibits that give a complete picture of how the body works.  Amazing!

Mamma will say it again - this exhibition may not be for everybody but it is definitely a learning experience for all ages and especially good for those with a keen interest on how we work.

Mamma's special mentions: Ascot Food Store is only a short drive away and worth the visit, and a bite to eat. Maybe it's an outdoor play that's needed after all that learning - Victory Park is literally around the corner and great for the little ones.
