Body Worlds

Conceived by Dr. Gunther von Hagens—the inventor of the preservative plastination technique used in the exhibit—Body Worlds showcases carefully conserved human bodies, revealing the anatomy’s inner workings to inquisitive eyes. After the bodies have been preserved using von Hagens’ method, 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, the fragility of the human form, and just added for 2016– several new iconic plastinates are on display including Poker Player Trio, featured in the Hollywood film Casino Royale.

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, The Art of the Brick, Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., and most recently, The Hunger Games: The Exhibition.
