BODY WORLDS Vital
An hour inside BODY WORLDS Vital exhibit can change the way people see themselves in the mirror. Filling the historic Quincy Market with 200 authentic human specimens, including individual organs, transparent slices, and whole bodies, the exhibit reveals our inner workings, from eyes and brains down to feet and toes. These bodies are frozen in time, many taking on athletic poses to emphasize key muscle groups, respiratory systems, and intricate blood vessels. To stay as true to life as possible, every specimen is different: some are healthy, some show damage from disease, and virtually none of them have the ability to shoot fireballs.
This unique insight into the human body is possible thanks to a technique called Plastination. In 1977, Dr. Gunther von Hagen invented the process, which removes skin and replaces degradable cells with hard resins and polymers—allowing every body system to come into view. The Institute for Plastination, the organization behind BODY WORLDS Vital, sources its specimens from more than 13,000 donors.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace
Faneuil Hall is like no other marketplace in America. Originally a meeting place for colonists, the hall's original 18th-century structure was where revolutionaries pushed the message of "no taxation without representation" while protesting the Sugar Act in 1764. This was where Samuel Adams spurred the city to take up the call for independence, and where Daniel Webster delivered the eulogies for John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Other historic Americans, from Susan B. Anthony to president Bill Clinton, have spoken at Faneuil Hall.
Yet while Faneuil Hall Marketplace has its roots in the past, it has changed over the years. In 1826, it expanded to include Quincy Market, and today it's also home to North Market and South Market. More than 18 million visitors shop at the market each year, making it the 4th-most visited attraction in the United States. There's more to do than shop: you can watch musicians, jugglers, and many other street performers.
