BODY WORLDS Vital

Conceived by Dr. Gunther von Hagen—the inventor of the preservative Plastination technique used in the exhibit—Body Worlds Vital 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 to allow guests to see the beauty of intricately connected systems of muscles, marvel at the delicate filigree of blood vessels, and continue to be puzzled about how anyone could possibly eat a light bulb. The exhibit juxtaposes healthy bodies against those suffering from disease and malfunction, demonstrating the advantages of healthy living and the fragility of the human form.

Buffalo Museum of Science

Since 1861, the Buffalo Society of Natural Science has culled more than 700,000 specimens and artifacts from around the world. These treasures now reside in the Buffalo Museum of Science which opened its doors in 1929. The museum allows visitors to explore anthropology, paleontology, and zoology, with an emphasis on the Greater Niagara region.

Special exhibits inspire curiousity in guests by exploring the world around them through hands-on education. Nano, for example, explains the basics of nanoscience and the way it impacts our lives. Opened in March 2012, the Explore YOU health science studio teaches visitors about their own bodies as they study recent medical technologies that help keep the human race healthy. Our Marvelous Earth, on the other hand, focuses on geological phenomena, extreme weather, and alternative forms of energy via displays and interactive exhibits where guests will have a chance to experience tornado-force winds. The newest exhibit to explore is In Motion which motivates children to learn how things move by interacting with gravity machines, car races, and a fluid dynamics simulator. Elsewhere, Seymour (a 10-foot tall mastodon) and Stanley (a 16-foot long albertosaurus) give kids a glimpse of some really, really, really old bones. For a more relaxing experience, visitors can check out the National Geographic 3D Cinema presented by M&T Bank for rotating titles. During the next few years, the museum will continue to add new exhibits and improve others with interactive technologies.
