Body Worlds: Pulse

Conceived by Dr. Gunther von Hagens—the inventor of the preservative plastination technique used in the exhibit—Body Worlds: Pulse showcases carefully conserved human bodies, revealing the anatomy's inner workings to inquisitive eyes. After the skin has been removed and the degradable cells have been replaced with hardened plastic, the bodies are displayed in realistic poses that simulate common movements such as playing football and dancing. Visitors can understand the beauty of intricately connected systems of muscles and marvel at the delicate filigree of blood vessels. The exhibit juxtaposes healthy bodies against those suffering from disease and malfunction, demonstrating the advantages of healthy living, the health risks of living in a fast-paced, 21st-century city, and the fragility of the human form.

Discovery Times Square

Unlike more traditional museums, Discovery Times Square does much more than simply display artifacts. The space, located in the building once occupied by the New York Times printing presses, encourages visitors to learn through interactive, sensory exhibits. Past shows have taken guests inside the Titanic’s final wreck site, Da Vinci’s ingenious inventions, and the vast collection of riches and bandages owned by King Tut. More than a museum, DTS has featured exhibitions of unparalleled breadth, including Pompeii: The Exhibit, Dead Sea Scrolls: The Exhibition, Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China’s First Emperor, and most recently The Art of the Brick.
