Body Worlds and The Cycle of Life

800 W. Wells Street, Milwaukee, WI, 53233
414-278-2728
Nearly 20 years after the first Body Worlds exhibit debuted in Tokyo, presenting real human anatomy preserved through a process of plastination developed by German anatomist Gunther von Hagens, Body Worlds remains one of the world’s most popular and controversial museum attractions. Countries around the world have outlawed the exhibits, and one Republican representative attempted to have the United States follow suit in 2008 (unsuccessfully). Milwaukee Public Museum’s new Body Worlds & The Cycle of Life exhibition uses more than 200 plastinated specimens to illustrate how the body ages, with figures culled from all stages of life, including youth and old age, providing an in-depth look at how time and illness leave their marks.
