Since opening in May, the exhibit has welcomed school groups, adults and families. OUR BODY: The Universe Within exposes the inner workings of human anatomy by presenting actual human specimens, anatomical displays, reproductions of historic anatomical artwork and much more. By presenting an artful, compelling and dignified environment, guests will connect with the human artifacts on a personal level that will help them to better understand their own bodies. The exhibit includes approximately 15 whole body specimens and 49 display cases containing more than 110 organs and specimens. Advanced tickets are on sale now at OURBODYomaha.com.

The exhibit literally, as well as figuratively, goes “under the skin,” exposing the intricacy of the human body and allowing the general public a look at what only doctors and scientists normally are allowed to see first hand. The exhibit will showcase specimens preserved through a polymer impregnation process that replaces fluids with polymers that prevent decay and decomposition.

The self-guided tour includes four touch specimens: liver, brain, kidney and heart. Appropriate for all ages, supplemental student and family guides are available online.

Adult tickets to OUR BODY: The Universe Within start at $15. Discounted tickets are available for seniors (ages 65 and up), $12; Military personnel and family, $12; students, $12; and children ages 5 to 14, $10. Children age four and under are free. An adult must accompany children under the age of 12. Group discounts are available. For more information, please visit OURBODYomaha.com.
